Although The New Indian Express said that it is expected to start functioning within two months. Original statement not supplied or found (not seen on UAE Embassy in India website).

    • "There is no proposal from the UAE to open more consulates in India ... There was no formal request from Indian officials that the UAE open another consulate in India, either. The matter was not discussed at any official stage."
    • "At an informal level, the issue of opening more consulates in India - including Kerala - was discussed."
  • 19 Jun 2011 - a Gulf News report said Speaking exclusively to Gulf News, Indian Minister of state for External Affairs and Human Resource Development E. Ahmad, who was on a short visit to the UAE recently, said the imminent opening of the UAE Consulate in Kerala is a symbol of close cooperation between two countries.

UAE Embassy in Syria
  • 07 Feb 2012 - Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries are withdrawing their ambassadors from Damascus in Syria (and maybe Consuls-General also) in response to the growing violence from the Syrian ruling regime towards its citizens.

  • 16 Nov 2011 (AFP) - protestors attacked the UAE Embassy in Damascus. On the same day, the Moroccan Embassy was also attacked by protestors throwing eggs and stones. A few days earlier (Sat 13 Nov 2011) the embassies of France, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey were attacked by protestors. The protestors were apparently supporters of Bashar Assad and his regime, annoyed at the UAE's support of the anti-Assad movement. Although the timing of the protest made it seem more like the protesters were supporters of violence, given that the UAE was attending an Arab League meeting hosted in Morocco intending to find a way to end the violence in Syria. The irony probably escapes the protestors. Exact nature of attack not reported, no deaths or injuries reported.
