In particular, he noted how the two nations have worked closely to tackle issues including climate change, global health and violent extremism.

Biden has previously worked closely with the UAE in his many years in government, most notably in the US Senate and as former Vice President under the Obama administration, something which Sheikh Khalifa highlighted in his cable.

The message was reaffirmed by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.
