Discrimination at the airports denied by UAE

Discrimination against any particular nationality at the various airports of the country has been denied by an official of United Arab Emirates (UAE) Foreign Ministry.

The official stated that at the airports, state of the art equipment is used for security checks and all passengers, irrespective of their nationality are required to go through these procedures.

These comments from the official came after the recent statement given by the Iranian Foreign Ministry accusing UAE of the discrimination shown by the country against the Iranian travelers at their airports.

The UAE official elaborated that their airports were equipped with the most modern security systems which included iris scanning which is mandatory for every passenger who is entering on a new visa.

He further said that the airport authorities concerned were prepared to look into any grievance even though the Iranian government did not specify any particular incident. The airport authorities are always keen that every passenger has a comfortable journey.
