Abstract : Beginning with Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in 1991, the relationship between the US and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has grown stronger based on mutual objectives associated with regional stability and security, anti-terrorism/anti-extremism, and economic improvement. Both nations benefit from their relationship with one another. The 1994 signing of a defense cooperation agreement now allows the US to position military forces within UAE territory. The availability of UAE territory not only bolsters US military capability in executing its Iraq and Afghanistan missions but also facilitates improved response to other potential regional threats. The presence of US forces provides the UAE with much needed security support. In addition to security-related links, US-UAE relations are also bolstered by increasing trade, business, and other professional connections.
