US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday hosted the UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, a day after he signed the Abraham Accord with Israel.

“The Secretary commended the Foreign Minister for the monumental accomplishment of the Abraham Accords and thanked him for his participation in the White House signing ceremony,” the State Department said.

Regional issues including Iran’s interference were also discussed.

In a tweet, Mr Pompeo said:

Earlier on Wednesday, Mr Pompeo said snapback sanctions would return next week after the UN’s failure to pass an extension of an arms embargo against Iran.

“We will return to the United Nations to reimpose sanctions so that the arms embargo will become permanent next week," he said.

"We believe deeply that this is good for the peoples of all nations."

US special representative on Venezuela and Iran, Elliott Abrams, said on Wednesday that the snapback sanctions would be imposed this Saturday.
