He said the agreement creates new energy for positive change across the Middle East.
Bilateral relations between the UAE and the US, reaffirming a shared commitment to cooperate on efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, promoting peace and security in the Arabian Gulf, counter-extremism and deterring threats to regional stability were also discussed.
Sheikh Abdullah emphasized the importance of the decades-long UAE-US partnership, which he described as the UAE’s most important and strategic relationship.
He noted that for more than a decade the UAE has remained the largest export market for US goods and services in the Middle East.
