The new Security Export Strategy does not outline any specific exports to the UAE and no discussions linked to the strategy have taken place with the UAE Government. The UK Government takes exporting responsibly very seriously. Where an export licence is required, it will be thoroughly assessed against the Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria.
