The United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia announced a joint vision for economic, developmental and military integration through 44 joint strategic projects

The deals came after Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman chaired the first meeting of the Saudi-Emirati Coordination Council in Jeddah.

During the meeting, the Saudi-Emirati Coordination Council’s Organizational Structure was declared with the objective of accelerating joint co-operation on the implementation of targeted projects and programs.

“We have a historic opportunity to create an exceptional Arab model of cooperation. Our solidarity and unity protect our interest, strengthen our economies and build a better future for our peoples,” Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed said at the end of the council’s meeting.
