  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said here Monday that the strategic partnership between his country and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was "very strong" and would not be affected by the ongoing talks on Iran's nuclear program, news agency WAM reported.

  Kerry flew in the UAE on Sunday after attending the talks in Geneva between six world powers and Iran, which failed to reach an agreement on ways to address the West's concern about Iran's disputed nuclear activities.

  The top U.S. diplomat met with Abu Dhabi's crown prince Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan and discussed with him the outcome of the nuclear talks and U.S.-UAE relations.

  The UAE, a major oil supplier and the United States' biggest Arab and Middle East trading partner, has expressed concerns about Iran's nuclear ambitions.

  Kerry said a deal was not reached in Geneva because Iran was not ready to accept the offer by the world powers, adding that the United States was not in a race to complete the talks with Iran.

  The West suspects Iran of secretly developing nuclear arms under the disguise of its nuclear enrichment plan.

  Kerry plans to return to Washington later Monday.
