UAE-Red Sea: Transcending concerns about the Houthis rolenote

The UAE had initiated contacts with Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and the Yemeni government to establish a collective position to prevent the Red Sea from turning into a battlefield.

Nevertheless, the military alliance between the U.S. and Britain has redirected the initiative away from the countries bordering the Red Sea, effectively placing its security in the hands of international powers.

This shift has left Abu Dhabi with transcending concerns.

The following note provides a comprehensive overview of the following aspects:

- The reasons behind the Emirati concerns

- President Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed’s strategy to overcome these concerns

- The scenarios in which the UAE would join the alliance against the Houthis

The note also highlights the primary objective of the Houthis’ military actions in the Red Sea, as perceived by Abu Dhabi.
