The New US-Israel-UAE-India Minilateral in a Changing West Asia

25 November 2021

Summary

The US-Israel-UAE trilateral was held in October between US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Israel’s alternate Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, and UAE’s Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan. A few days later, India joined the new minilateral: External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and his Israeli counterpart held a virtual meeting with their US and UAE equivalents during Jaishankar’s official visit to Israel. India has already hinted of a second meeting of the grouping soon.
