The UAE is keen on strengthening relations with Egypt, its foreign minister said on Tuesday, welcoming newly elected President Mohamed Morsi's pledge not to "export" his country's revolution.
Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahayan's statement came days after Egypt's foreign ministry summoned the UAE ambassador over comments made by Dubai police chief General Dahi Khalfan offering "condolences" on Morsi's victory.
"We are keen on strengthening these historical and brotherly relations during the upcoming period politically and economically," Sheikh Abdullah said in a statement published on state news agency WAM.
He welcomed Morsi's remarks pledging "to not meddle in the affairs of others and not export the revolution" that brought him to power, according to WAM.
Sheikh Abdullah, who said he views Morsi's rule with "optimism," added that "Egypt's strong, balanced and effective role will positively affect the Arab world."
Khalfan, known for his hostility towards Islamists, offered his "condolences to the Arab and Muslim nation on the victory of the Muslim Brotherhood who do not represent Islam" in tweets published after Morsi was declared winner.
He also said the Egyptian revolution was "carried out by the youth, and the Brothers have harvested the fruits."
