The essay noted that the harmful conduct of Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed – commonly known as MBZ- was enabled by the former administration of Donald Trump, adding that the UAE’s foreign policy “undermines US strategic interests in the Middle East.”


It stressed that the new administration should not only revise Trump’s “egregious missteps,” but also “put an end to US arms sales to and diplomatic support for the UAE, which have helped create humanitarian crises and regional instability.”


The article referred to the UAE’s role in the chaos that has gripped Libya, saying Abu Dhabi “persistently violated a UN arms embargo by funding and arming the renegade warlord Khalifa Haftar in his campaign against the internationally recognized Libyan government in Tripoli.”


It also noted that the UAE has established its own military base in the North African country, and sent drone aircraft to conduct unlawful airstrikes that claimed the lives of tens of civilians.


The article also described the UAE’s role in Yemen as “even more grim.”
