The leaders reaffirmed the close UAE-US security partnership and committed to intensify the fight against extremism. They also discussed mutual concerns and responses to Iran’s destabilizing interference in the affairs of regional states.
Amir Oren, Analyst blames President Trump for lack of arms sales to the UAE and Gulf States, he wants America to just sell its advanced military technology without checks and balances. Clearly he does not take into consideration Israel’s security. He rather just bad mouth President Trump
