    ABU DHABI — A whirlwind trip by Vice President Kamala Harris to the United Arab Emirates to pay respects following the death of its ruler doubled as an opportunity to reset a relationship with an important regional ally. Tensions have been rising between the countries as the UAE has reportedly rebuffed Washington's oil entreaties amid other disagreements. “We are going there, then, to express our condolences, but also as an expression of our commitment to the strength of that relationship,” said Harris, the highest-level Biden administration official to greet the country's new president. In Abu Dhabi, seated at a distance from observers in the cavernous gilded room, Harris and UAE President Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan went largely unheard with only official photographers until the final minutes. Seated next to Harris, Secretary of State Antony Blinken leaned over his armrest as if to better hear.

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Turkey’s president visited the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday to pay respects to the federation’s late ruler and congratulate his successor, deepening a rapprochement between the countries after a bitter rivalry in the wake of the 2011 Arab uprisings. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan praised Abu Dhabi’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan on his elevation to power after nearly a decade as de facto leader. From a gleaming reception hall at Abu Dhabi airport, he offered condolences on the death of the long-ailing late President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Turkish government said. In a scene unthinkable just a decade ago as ties between the countries frayed over Turkey’s support for Islamist groups around the Middle East, Erdogan pulled Sheikh Mohammed in for a big hug. Erdogan’s trip on Tuesday marks his second to the UAE this year as Turkey, diplomatically isolated and in desperate need of foreign currency and investment, seeks to mend fences with old foes — including most recently with Saudi Arabia. Since the coronavirus pandemic and...

    PARIS (AP) — French investigative judges at the Paris Tribunal on Wednesday opened a probe into torture allegations against Interpol President Maj. Gen. Ahmed Nasser al-Raisi of the United Arab Emirates. Two British citizens, Matthew Hedges and Ali Issa Ahmad, who had both been detained in the UAE before al-Raisi was elected president of the France-based world police agency, will on Wednesday give evidence against him at the Specialized Judicial Unit for Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes of the Paris Tribunal, their lawyers said. The two Britons filed a criminal complaint against al-Raisi with the prosecutors of the Paris Tribunal in October under the principle of universal jurisdiction. In January, they filed a criminal complaint directly with the judges of the Tribunal to open an investigation into claims against al-Raisi. The new Interpol president was on French territory at the time, visiting the international police agency’s headquarters in Lyon. Al-Raisi was elected for a four-year term as Interpol president in November. He has been accused by human rights groups of involvement in torture and arbitrary detentions...
