US Officials in Middle East to Tamp Down Concern Over Iran Deal

With the Biden administration engaged in talks that could revive the Iran nuclear deal, US allies in the Middle East that are against the agreement are concerned. Besides Israel, Arab allies like the UAE and Saudi Arabia are also opposed to a revival of the JCPOA.

To tamp down these concerns the Biden administration has dispatched officials to the region. Senator Chris Coons (D-DE), who is seen as a key Biden ally, spoke with reporters in Abu Dhabi on Monday. He said he was there to alleviate the UAE’s “understandable and legitimate concerns” and create a “broader engagement” with Gulf countries. Coons said the US was in “close consultations” with the UAE on the Iran talks that are ongoing in Vienna.

Several senior Biden administration officials are touring the region this week, including Brett McGurk, who heads Middle East policy on the National Security Council. McGurk and his delegation are expected to visit Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, Amman, and Cairo.
