The United Arab Emirates on Sunday condemned the “heinous” killing of a high Iranian nuclear scientist that Tehran has blamed on Israel, urging all events to train restraint.
“The UAE condemns assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh and (calls) on all events to train self-restraint to keep away from dragging area into new ranges of instability and menace to peace,” the overseas ministry tweeted.
It described Fakhrizadeh’s killing as an “heinous crime”.
Fakhrizadeh, dubbed by Israel because the “father” of Iran’s nuclear programme, was fatally wounded Friday when assailants focused his automotive and engaged in a gunfight together with his bodyguards outdoors Tehran, in response to Iran’s defence ministry.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has confused the nation will search its revenge in “due time” and never be rushed right into a “entice”.
He pinned the blame on “the depraved palms of the worldwide conceitedness, with the usurper Zionist regime because the mercenary”. Iran usually makes use of the time period “international conceitedness” to confer with the US.
The strongly-worded UAE condemnation comes weeks after the Gulf nation normalised ties with Israel.
