Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu will visit Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), on Monday to hold talks with Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan as well as with the emirate's dignitaries.

Diplomatic tensions between Turkey and the UAE have been ongoing since the UAE openly supported the July 2013 military coup that ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi.

UAE ambassador to Ankara Khalid Khalifa al-Mualla has reportedly not been at his post since the summer of 2013, although he is still officially assigned to Turkey.

However, diplomatic sources indicate that the UAE is stepping back from its anti-Turkey discourse in international politics and will send an ambassador to Ankara soon to restore ties.
