Washington, D.C. - Senior military and governmental officials from the United States and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) concluded the first meeting of the UAE-US Committee on Defence Strategies and Policies last Tuesday.

The said committee aims to establish government-to-government dialogue between the two countries on security and strategic issues and common interests as well as to define the aspects of future bilateral cooperation.

The UAE delegation to the meeting was led by Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Dr Anwar Mohammed Gargash and UAE Air Force, Air Defence Commander, Major General Mohammed bin Suwaidan Saeed Al-Qamzi.

U.S Under Secretary of Defence for Policy Michele A. Flournoy and U.S Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs William J. Burns took part in the meeting.

In the joint communiqué issued at the conclusion of the meeting, the two sides underscored the significance of their mutual interests for bolstering bilateral cooperation and developing a common approach in order to face the regional security challenges, elevate the level of contacts, boost the UAE defence capabilities as well as the potential military interoperability.

Laying emphasis on the growing UAE-US security relations and common interests, UAE Ambassador to the U.S Youssef Mana' Al-Otaiba said "the launch of these meetings represents a major shift in the UAE-US relations as they seek to further cement our common goals of promoting regional peace, security and stability."

"With the inauguration of this strategic dialogue at the highest governmental and military levels, we lay foundations for a strong bilateral relationship between the two countries," Al-Otaiba added. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
