UAE: Major arms deal with US will likely remain in place under Biden administration

Predictions

  • Major arms deal with US will likely remain in place under Biden administration given firm Emirati commitment to Israeli normalisation deal
  • US relations likely to be less close under new administration, but shared strategic aims will likely prevent major change in relationship
  • Formal moves towards more liberal social policies will encourage further investment and tourism in coming year, particularly from Israel

Event

The Trump administration informed the US Congress on 11 November that it had approved an arms deal worth USD 23 billion with the UAE, including the sale of up to 50 F-35 jets.
