The US State Department has made a determination approving a potential follow-on blanket order for US Marine Corps (USMC) training and support from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced on 24 May.

The request is being considered under the US government's, foreign military sales programme.

In a package worth $100 million, the UAE has requested USMC training, training support, and other training related services in support of the UAE's Presidential Guard Command. The proposed sale will provide the continuation of USMC training of the Presidential Guard for counterterrorism, counter-piracy, critical infrastructure protection and national defence. This training also provides engagement opportunities through military exercises, training and common equipment.
