April 27, 2011 02:53

WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama had what the White House described as productive, wide-ranging talks with the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday but few details of their discussion were revealed.

The United Arab Emirates has been among the Gulf Arab states seeking to negotiate an orderly transition of power in Yemen after three months of unrest.

Obama is also attempting to persuade world oil powers to increase production of crude to help alleviate a surge in US gasoline prices that have put political pressure on him at home.

A White House statement said Obama and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan emphasized strong ties between their two countries and the importance of continued close consultations.
