United Arab Emirates 2007

According to ezinereligion, in 2007, the population of the United Arab Emirates was estimated to be 4.5 million people. The economy of the UAE was heavily reliant on oil and gas production, with the country’s GDP being largely driven by exports of these commodities. Foreign relations were mainly with its Arab neighbours and other countries in the Middle East, such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar. In 2007, the country was led by President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan who had been in power since 2004. During his presidency, Sheikh Khalifa sought to diversify the UAE’s economy away from oil and gas production and into other sectors such as tourism, finance and technology. As part of this effort he oversaw a number of reforms to attract foreign investment into the country including tax breaks for businesses and improved infrastructure investments.

The role of the UAE in the raids in Libya

Between 18 and 23 August 2014, unidentified planes bombed neighborhoods and positions in Tripoli in the hands of the Islamist militias of Misrata. Based on the reconstruction of the episodes and according to an investigation carried out in the following days by David Kirkpatrick from the columns of the International New York Times, those responsible for the aerial bombardments were Egypt and the United Arab Emirates. A similar episode was repeated in September 2014. According to journalistic reconstructions, the UAE provided planes and pilots for the attacks, while Egypt provided air bases. These hypotheses were later denied through an official note from both Abu Dhabi and Cairo. If Egypt’s entry into the Libyan scene is also dictated by security factors – especially in fear of a spillover effecton its territory -, the involvement of the UAE in the Tripoli raids would be linked to the tensions with Qatar and its role as ‘protector’ of the Muslim Brotherhood. According to many analysts, the internal struggle in the Persian Gulf region between Abu Dhabi and Riyadh on the one hand and Doha on the other would have moved to the coasts of the African Mediterranean. The risk therefore is that Libya could turn into a new theater where a proxy war is being played between the Gulf powers.
