UAE/GULF CRISIS – UAE sees ‘seeds of progress’ on Gulf crisis, says envoy to US (Al Jazeera)

There were “seeds of progress” in resolving a long-running Gulf Arab dispute and a commitment to “tone things down” as the parties work for a solution to end the rift with neighbouring Qatar, according to the United Arab Emirates’ ambassador to Washington.

Ambassador Yousef al-Otaiba’s comments on Tuesday to a US think-tank were more cautious than those of ally Saudi Arabia, whose foreign minister last week said significant progress was made and a final agreement was within reach.

SAUDI ARABIA/UAE – Saudi-UAE ties are central to regional peace, prosperity (Sultan Althari, Al Arabiya)

The United Arab Emirates celebrated its 49th national day this week – while commemorating such an occasion is imperative, it certainly isn’t the only reason to celebrate.

It is also a reminder to take pride in – and celebrate – the UAE and Saudi Arabia’s indispensable ties, as well as the strategic economic, social, and geopolitical value bilateral relations offer the region at large. Strategic alignment at the national level between Saudi Vision 2030 and UAE Vision 2021 comes with positive byproducts that extend far beyond Riyadh and Abu Dhabi.
