US, UAE strike new defense accord on US force levels in Emirates

Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan shakes hands with U.S. President Donald Trump as they meet in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, U.S. May 15, 2017.

:: The United States and the United Arab Emirates have signed a new, updated defense cooperation agreement that the Pentagon on Tuesday said dictated “the magnitude and conditions” of the US military presence inside the Emirates.

“This provides the US military with the ability to more seamlessly respond to a range of scenarios in and around the UAE, if necessary,” Pentagon spokesman Christopher Sherwood told Reuters, without elaborating.
