DUBAI - Iran's foreign minister went to the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday hoping to improve relations with the US ally after Tehran's deal with world powers under which it is to curb its disputed nuclear activity in exchange for sanctions relief.

Across the Gulf from Iran and home to tens of thousands of Iranians, the UAE stands to benefit directly from any easing of sanctions under the nuclear deal that have dampened regional trade since they were imposed in late 2011.

The UAE was Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif's latest stop in a regional tour aimed at easing concerns among Iran's Gulf Arab neighbors about a potential resurgence in its influence following the Nov. 24 deal.

In a meeting with UAE ruler Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahayan in the capital Abu Dhabi, Zarif said Iran hoped to "institutionalize" relations between the two neighbors, and invited him to visit Tehran.

Zarif then traveled to Dubai, where he met with ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
