U.S., UAE strike new defense accord on U.S. force levels in Emirates

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - 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 U.S. military presence inside the Emirates.

“This provides the U.S. 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.
