The two delegations confirmed that the US-UAE economic relationship remains close and constructive, with the UAE maintaining its position as the United States’ largest trading partner in the Middle East and North Africa for the twelfth year in a row.

They also commended the historic signing of the Abraham Accords in September 2020.
