US officials Harris, Blinken head to UAE after leader’s death

A high-powered delegation that includes US Vice President Kamala Harris and Secretary of State Antony Blinken and top military and intelligence officials have embarked on a trip to the United Arab Emirates after the death of President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

SIA reports quoting foreign media that, the visit, beginning on Monday, will give top US officials an opportunity to offer condolences in the wake of Sheikh Khalifa’s death on Friday, as well as greet the incoming president, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who was elected by the Federal Supreme Council the next day.

The delegation’s potent roster underscores the continued significance of the regional ally to the United States and appears to be an attempt by the administration of President Joe Biden to repair relations that have frayed in recent months.

Those visiting the country include Harris, Blinken, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Central Intelligence Agency Director William Burns and Climate Envoy John Kerry.
