UAE always been key alliance and counter-terrorist ally with the USA and played an important dominant rule in Trump’s foreign policy.
Back in August 2019, President Donald Trump meets with Abu Dhabi’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Zayed, in the White House. Key issues in the Gulf region and globally discussed with a shared interest and common values.
The two countries are working together to promote regional security, create economic prosperity, and address global challenges.
On January 15, 2009, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Foreign Minister of the United Arab Emirates, and U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice signed a bilateral agreement for peaceful nuclear cooperation that enhances international standards of nuclear non-proliferation.
The United States maintains three military bases in the United Arab Emirates. The three bases are Al Dhafra Air Base, Al Minhad Air Base, and the Fujairah Naval Base
The UAE’s recent efforts to combat extremism and provide humanitarian aid to those in need support the two countries’ mutual resolve to promote Middle East security and address pressing global challenges.
In recent years Donald Trump administration override Obama policy and vision toward Iran’s current situation, as President Trump sees Iran as the main threats in the region and the Middle East.
UAE was more hoping for the rhetoric question to become more of action by UAS, especially in pushing back Iran’s action in the region and direct support toward Yemen cause. UAE has been the main Saudi Air alliance for the last couple of years to destabilise security in the region.
On Iran, the UAE has supported the Trump Administration policy of pressuring Iran economically and politically. In part to counter Iran, the UAE joined Saudi Arabia in a military effort to pressure the Iran-backed Zaidi Shia Houthi rebels in Yemen, a campaign aided by some U.S. logistical support
Yet, in mid-2019, as U.S.-Iran tensions in the Gulf grew, the UAE leadership appeared to shift toward more engagement with Iran, apparently to avoid being drawn into a war with Iran that could see the UAE incur significant damage. In August 2019, UAE security officials visited Iran for the first bilateral security talks since 2013, a visit that followed the UAE government’s declining to directly blame Tehran for attacks on six commercial tankers in the Gulf in May and June 2019.
