Arab Emirates crown prince to visit Obama on Tuesday

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The crown prince of the United Arab Emirates will visit President Barack Obama at the White House next Tuesday to discuss relations between the two countries, the White House said on Friday.

Obama and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan will use the visit to discuss strong ties between the two countries and “our common strategic interests” in the region, a statement said.

The United Arab Emirates has been among the Gulf Arab states seeking to negotiate an orderly transition of power in Yemen after three months of unrest.
