US-UAE Export Control and Counter-Proliferation Workshop
July 6, 2009
Body TThe Department of State-coordinated Export Control and Related Border Security (EXBS) program is a collaborative program focused on the exchange of ideas and best practices in the area of export controls and related counter-proliferation matters. A successful two-day EXBS training course was held in the UAE Capital Abu Dhabi for 50 Emirati judges and prosecutors July 6-7, 2009. Given its critical location in the Persian Gulf, UAE is a critical link in our efforts to stem world-wide proliferation of WMD. The July 2009 EXBS workshop in Abu Dhabi provided insight for local officials into the techniques and experiences of U.S. law enforcement and prosecutors to successfully prosecute violators of export control laws.
