United Arab Emirates and the United States entry Defense Cooperation Agreement
The United Arab Emirates and the United States have announced the entry into force of the Defense Cooperation Agreement (DCA), signed earlier this year.
The UAE news agency (WAM) reported that the announcement came in a joint a statement after a meeting between the UAE National Security Adviser Sheikh Tahnoon bin Zayed Al Nahyan and US National Security Adviser John Bolton in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.
The agreement will enhance military coordination between the two nations, further advancing an already robust military, political, and economic partnership at a critical time, reads the statement. It emphasized that 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 defence and security matters and supporting efforts by both nations to maintain security in the Gulf region, added the statement.
