The UAE and US also underscored that serious dialogue and constructive understanding are the adequate mechanisms to address and resolve all crises and issues in the region.

Looking at regional concerns and developments, the two sides discussed the humanitarian crisis in Syrian and results of the recently concluded Geneva II Conference on Syria. Situation in Egypt was also figured high during the Sheikh Mohamed-Kerry talks, where they stressed the importance of realising political and economic stability there.
