An official at UAE's Foreign Ministry has asserted that no discrimination is practised against any particular nationality at the country's various airports.

The official explained that the procedures followed at the airports use state of the art systems for security check, and all passengers, irrespective of their citizenships, have to pass through these procedures.

Commenting on a recent statement by the Iranian Foreign Ministry, accusing UAE of discriminating against Iranian travellers at the country's airports, the official said that the airports are equipped with the most modern security systems conforming to the highest standards. These include the iris scanning, which is mandatory on every passenger entering on a new visa, irrespective of his citizenship, clarified the official.

He added that the airport personnel are trained to conduct this security checks in an errorless way.

Expressing astonishment at the general remarks of the Iranian government, without specifying any particular incident, the official said that the concerned authorities are prepared to look into any grievance if put up by a passenger, as the country is always keen to ensure every passenger a comfortable journey. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
