The UAE on Saturday announced that it would not grant an Israel member of the International Chamber of Commerce a visa to participate in a Dubai banking conference set for Monday. The announcement followed the UAE's refusal to grant Israeli tennis player Shahar Pe'er a visa to compete in the Barclay's Dubai Tennis Championships last month.
