DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The United Arab Emirates on Monday strongly denied any link to an alleged spy ring uncovered by Oman, a neighboring Gulf country.

A statement by the UAE's foreign ministry said the nation is "shocked and surprised" by the claim and promises to assist Oman in any investigations. The statement was posted by the state news agency WAM.

Oman on Sunday said it dismantled a spy ring linked to the UAE that targeted government and military operations.

Omani authorities have given no other details, but suggested that arrests have been made.

It marks a rare display of tensions between the close allies.
