Mohammad, Trump discuss developments in call

Washington: The White House said Friday that President Donald Trump would host His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, but did not specify a date. The White House said Shaikh Mohammad and Trump spoke on the phone “to discuss regional developments and opportunities for increasing cooperation on a range of security and economic issues”.

A statement added: “The leaders agreed that all GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) states can and should do more to increase coordination with each other and with the United States to ensure the peace and prosperity of the people in the region.”

Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE cut diplomatic and trade ties with Qatar last year, accusing Doha of bankrolling extremists and fostering ties with Iran.

The statement said the two leaders “agreed on the importance of a united GCC”.
