The United Arab Emirates has warned Turkey against interfering in matters of Arab counties.

Denouncing Turkey’s Defense Minister Hulusi Akar’s comment on UAE’s foreign policy in an interview with a Qatari TV channel, Dr. Anwar Gargash, UAE’s minister of state for foreign affairs on Saturday called it a new low for Turkey’s diplomacy.

In addition, “The provocative statement of the Turkish Minister of Defense is a new (failure for) his country’s diplomacy…Relations doesn’t happen with threats and intrusions, and there is no place for colonial illusions at this time; and it is more appropriate for Turkey to stop interfering in Arab affairs,” Gargash tweeted.

Also Gargash’s statement comes a day after the Turkish defense minister claimed that the UAE was committing “malicious acts” in Libya and Syria.
