It added both sides discussed the expansion of relationship between Kabul and Dubai.
Haqqani thanked UAE for handing over the Dubai Consulate General to the IEA and added establishment of ties with Afghanistan was in the interest of neighbouring countries.
The MoI quoted Haqqani as saying that Afghanistan was a strategic area and the world should refrain from maintain a double policy with Kabul.
