The U.S. Mission in the United Arab Emirates said on Monday that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo would discuss "building a global coalition to counter the world's largest state sponsor of terror" during his visit to Abu Dhabi.

Pompeo arrived in the UAE capital after a visit to Saudi Arabia. A senior U.S. State Department official earlier said the United States is building a coalition with its allies to protect Gulf shipping lanes by having "eyes on all shipping," following attacks on oil tankers that Washington has blamed on Iran.
