Joint Statement by Middle East Strategic Alliance (MESA)


The Middle East Strategic Alliance (MESA) partners met at the Department of State on September 17-18, 2019, to continue to advance MESA and build greater cooperation in the Gulf region in the face of common threats.  The meeting was attended by Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and hosted by the United States.


The MESA partners discussed the current tension in the region and condemn in the strongest terms the attack on the Aramco oil facilities in Saudi Arabia on September 14 which sought to disrupt oil markets and regional stability.


The attack underscores the continuing importance of cooperation between the MESA partners to strengthen regional security, peace, and stability, promote and expand economic opportunities, and strengthen and secure critical energy sectors.
