UAE, US activate defense cooperation agreement

A defense cooperation agreement between the United Arab Emirates and the United States has come into force, UAE state news agency WAM said on Wednesday, as US National Security Adviser John Bolton visited Abu Dhabi.

Bolton met his Emirati counterpart Sheikh Tahnoun bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The agreement “will enhance military coordination between the two nations, further advancing an already robust military, political and economic partnership at a critical time,” WAM said, citing a joint statement.

The agreement was signed earlier this year and has now come into force, it said.

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, according to the statement.
