Tehran's approach to UAE will change after Israel deal

Iran's approach to the United Arab Emirates will change, the country's armed forces chief of staff Major General Mohammad Bagheri was quoted as saying on Sunday, after a deal between the Arab state and Tehran's arch foe Israel on normalising ties.
"Tehran's approach to the UAE will change ... If something happens in the Persian Gulf region and if our national security is damaged, however small, we will hold the UAE responsible for that and we will not tolerate it," Bagheri said.
US President Donald Trump announced Thursday the agreement to normalize relations, in a move forestalling Israel's controversial plans to annex large swathes of the occupied West Bank. The deal is expected to inked within three weeks.
The UAE is the first Gulf state and third Arab nation to have full diplomatic relations with Israel after Egypt and Jordan.
