Secretary of State specifically mentions Saudi Arabia, uae, Qatar, Jordan and Egypt as allies.
What some at the State Department might regard as an oversight was interpreted as a major slight by the uae.
But one party who may not be pleased with it is the uae airline, Emirates.
Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly said that the U.S. sold F-22 fighter jets to the uae.
The forces from Christian nations were hired to protect Muslim leaders in the uae, Wired reported in 2011.
Correction: The original version of this article incorrectly named the foreign minister of the uae.
However, the Arab League, which includes Qatar, the uae and Saudi Arabia, never approved a military strike.
Both the uae and the kingdom see the Brotherhood as a menace.
The uae issued its own statement this weekend fully backing Abdullah.
Its current president, Asif Zardari, spent years in the uae.
