Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and visiting U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton had an official meeting on Wednesday and discussed several issues of mutual concern, including joint coordination as part of the international efforts to counter violence, extremism, and terrorism.
The Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and the U.S. National Security Adviser also took stock of the latest regional and global issues of mutual interest, and consequences of unfolding developments in the region.
The United Arab Emirates and the United States have also announced the entry into force of the Defense Cooperation Agreement (DCA), signed earlier this year.
The agreement will enhance military coordination between the two nations, further advancing an already robust military, political, and economic partnership at a critical time.
The United Arab Emirates and the United States share a deep interest in promoting prosperity and stability in the region.
The DCA will advance that interest by fostering closer collaboration on defense and security matters and supporting efforts by both nations to maintain security in the Gulf region.
