United States President Joe Biden has cancelled a crucial
deal Donald Trump, the former United States President, reached with the United
Arab Emirates in connection with aluminium import.
Mr. Biden has reinstated the policy of ten per cent
tariff on aluminium imports from the UAE.
Earlier, Mr. Trump cancelled the tariff, declaring the
UAE as a prime security partner of the United States of America.
The Trump-led US also agreed to sell certain crucial military
aircrafts to the UAE.
Mr. Biden has also decided to relook the decision to sell
the military aircrafts to the United Arab Emirates.
The development is likely to affect the relation
between the US and the UAE. It is also expected to affect the defence relation
between the two powerful countries.
The Trump-led US saw the UAE as a strategic partner in
the region, for its unique location in the heart of the Middle East.
The UAE is a very powerful country. The country has
not yet commended on the development. It is clear that the UAE is not happy
with the development.
The development also indicates that the new administration led by Joe Biden does not see the Middle East in the way how Mr. Trump saw the region.
