United States and the United Arab Emirates Joint Statement


The United States (U.S.) and the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) have an enduring partnership and share a common vision for a secure, stable, and prosperous Middle East. They share a belief in peace, respect for the sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity of all states and a belief that religious tolerance and moderation will prevail over violence and extremism. It is these commonly held tenets that have brought the United States and the U.A.E. to a new level of friendship and cooperation.

Our two nations have enjoyed close relations since the U.A.E.'s federation that have grown stronger in recent times. The United States and the U.A.E. collaborate as like-minded partners on regional issues such as the Arab-Israeli peace process, ensuring peace and stability in Lebanon, and supporting Iraq's increasing engagement with its neighbors. The U.S. and U.A.E. also work closely to bring peace and stability to Afghanistan and to strengthen the economy of Pakistan.

The U.S. and U.A.E. are allies and partners in the continuing struggle against terror and extremism. The U.A.E. provides the U.S. and coalition forces access to its ports and territory and other critical and important logistical assistance. The U.A.E. and the U.S. continue to work together to undercut the violent ideology used to justify extremism and prevent terrorist attacks against our people and common interests and the terrorist financing that supports terrorist organizations. The U.A.E. also enhances global security by actively participating in various initiatives to counter illicit shipments of dangerous goods and materials. The U.S. and the U.A.E. share a deep concern over the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), their delivery systems, and related materials, as well as WMD financing, and reaffirm the importance for all nations to comply with United Nations (U.N.) Security Council Resolutions and cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

The U.A.E. has played a positive role in advancing democratic reforms in the region and has helped lead the Broader Middle East and North Africa Initiative, including hosting the Forum for the Future in 2008. Ongoing efforts to increase cooperation in the fields of education and cultural exchange will not only deepen our bilateral relationship, but also promote shared values of tolerance and moderation throughout our societies.

In the area of human rights, the U.S. and U.A.E. share a common purpose in the fight against human trafficking, in expanding opportunities for women, and in improving standards for workers. The U.S. continues to work with the U.A.E. as it reforms its education system so that U.A.E. students can lead lives as life-long learners and responsible citizens in a global society.

The U.A.E. and the U.S. continue to work closely together in assuring the stability and security of energy supplies and their unhindered transit through international waterways. The U.S. recognizes that the U.A.E. has been a responsible and reliable supplier of energy to world markets, with the sustained involvement of U.
