Queen Elizabeth II's visit to Abu Dhabi may signify Britain's turning away from its traditional support of Israel, The Daily Telegraph reported on Thursday.

Foreign Office officials told the UK daily that the Queen's five-day state visit to the United Arab Emirates, her first in over 30 years, as well as Foreign Secretary William Hague's focus on Gulf States show that Britain plans to "take on board" the goals of Arab foreign policy as well as improve diplomatic and trade ties with Arab states.
