Russia–United Arab Emirates relations
United Arab Emirates
The relationship between the Russian Federation and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) stretches back to December 1971, when the Soviet Union and UAE established diplomatic relations. Relations between the two countries have been described as strong and a "strategic partnership", with the countries cooperating closely in Iraq, Egypt and Libya.
The UAE was alone in the Gulf Cooperation Council in endorsing the 2015 Russian military intervention in the Syrian Civil War, describing it as against a "common enemy" of the two nations.
During 2017, UAE has sought to drive a wedge between Russia and its ally, Iran, which the UAE has a poor relationship with. Along with Saudi Arabia and Israel, the UAE encouraged the United States to remove sanctions on Russia pertaining to its activity in Ukraine in exchange for Russian assistance in ending the Iranian military presence in Syria.
