by

The US Mission in the United Arab Emirates said on Monday that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo discussed countering the threat from Iran in the region with Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed.

The mission had earlier tweeted that Pompeo will also discuss “building a global coalition to counter the world’s largest state sponsor of terror” during his visit to Abu Dhabi.

Pompeo arrived in the UAE capital after a visit to Saudi Arabia.

A senior US State Department official earlier said the United States is building a coalition with its allies to protect Gulf shipping lanes by having “eyes on all shipping”, following attacks on oil tankers that Washington has blamed on Iran.
