Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, spoke on the phone to the Iraqi prime minister on Sunday.
Sheikh Mohamed reaffirmed the UAE’s position of solidarity with Iraq in its endeavours towards stability and safety.
Mr Al Kadhimi thanked him and expressed appreciation for the Emirates’ support of Iraq and its people.
Condemnation poured in from around the world after a drone hit the prime minister’s home in Baghdad early on Sunday.
Mr Al Kadhimi was slightly injured on his left wrist in the attack, two security sources told The National. At least five of his guards were also hurt.
The UAE’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation and Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Ministry “strongly condemned” what they called a “cowardly terrorist attack” on the residence inside the Green Zone in Baghdad.
The secure compound houses government buildings and international missions, including the US embassy.
