Other types of cooperation

Two important cooperation agreements were signed during the official visit by the President of the Republic, on January 15th, 2008:

a cooperation agreement regarding civilian nuclear energy.

an agreement regarding a permanent military presence in the UAE.

The latter agreement has encouraged the installation of a French military base in Abu Dhabi, whose creation was announced during this same visit. The “peace camp” was inaugurated a year later, in May 2009, during another visit by the President of the Republic. More than 400 French soldiers are present in the UAE.
