The Ministry affirmed that the United Arab Emirates fully stands with the brotherly Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in its efforts aimed at the stability and security of the region, and its main role in the axis of Arab moderation and regional security, stressing the rejection of any attempts to exploit this issue or interfere in the Kingdom's internal affairs.
