DUBAI - Gulf Arab power the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Wednesday criticized the European Union for seeking Iranian cooperation in stabilizing the region, saying that an "aggressive" Tehran was helping to polarize the countries there.

A senior UAE official said that EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, who visited Iran this week, failed to understand Iran's aims and her praise for the commitment shown by its negotiators in nuclear talks appeared misplaced.

Anwar Gargash, the UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, said Mogherini had not grasped the divisiveness of Iranian policy and suggested her praise of the Iranian officials with whom she negotiated the deal was misplaced.
