LONDON: The UAE’s Ministry of Defence has denied media reports that the US is building up its military presence at Al-Dhafra Air Base in the country.

The Emirates News Agency, or WAM, reported the MoD saying in a statement on Thursday that the claims are “baseless” and that US military aircraft have been arriving at Al-Dhafra Air Base for several months on a routine basis. This is in accordance with pre-determined timetables and within the framework of the military cooperation between the UAE and the US, reported WAM.
