Egypt interior minister meets Dubai security official

DOHA (AA) – Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, deputy police chief of Dubai, received Egyptian Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim to the influential Gulf emirate on Tuesday.

Ibrahim led a delegation of Egyptian security officials on a tour of Dubai's police headquarters on Tuesday, Dubai's police service said via Facebook.

Ibrahim and Tamim reportedly discussed means of "deepening bilateral relations and exchanging security expertise," along with recent political developments in the region.

One day earlier, Ibrahim had met with Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al-Nahyan – the United Arab Emirates' deputy prime minister and interior minister – at the Dubai police headquarters.

Ibrahim, who is visiting the UAE for the first time since his appointment one year ago, arrived in the Gulf country on Sunday.

Tamim has gained notoriety in recent months due to his frequent claims that Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood group was seeking to "destabilize" the Gulf monarchies that supported the 2013 ouster of elected Egyptian President and Brotherhood leader Mohamed Morsi.

Ibrahim, for his part, continues to preside over a deadly crackdown on dissent in Egypt of which the Brotherhood remains the primary target.

The Egyptian government designated the Brotherhood a "terrorist organization" in December of 2013.
