During the meeting, which was attended by H.H. Sheikh Tahnoun bin Zayed Al Nahyan, National Security Adviser, and H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, there was a demonstration on the developments in the regional and international scene, especially the crises witnessed by Syria, Yemen and Libya.
They explored the most important ideas and diplomatic solutions suggested for these crises, and the vision of the two countries regarding the challenges that face the Middle Eastern region and undermine its foundations of peace and stability. The discussions included the international community’s efforts in fighting terrorism, extremism and violence, and the co-ordination of the two countries in this regard. They highlighted the importance of continued support to these efforts to spread peace and establish the foundations of security and stability in the region.
The meeting also witnessed deliberations on the current forms of partnership between the two countries, and their commitment to intensify efforts to fight terrorist and extremist organisations. They stressed the importance of expanding diplomatic measures to face the violent regional interferences in the affairs of the region’s countries and increased efforts to achieve stability in Libya, Yemen and Syria.

The US exports to the UAE stood at US$ 22 billion in 2016.
The meetings also touched on a number of regional issues, including the endavours to combat terrorist groups, the crises in a number of countries of the region and the efforts to strengthen regional and international peace, stability and security.
