Yousef Al Otaiba became ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to the United States and Mexico on July 25, 2008.

Ambassador Al Otaiba previously served for seven years as director of international affairs for the Court of the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, during which time he was a senior counselor to Gen. Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, crown prince of Abu Dhabi and deputy supreme commander of the UAE Armed Forces. In these roles, Ambassador Al Otaiba served as the UAE’s principal security, anti-terrorism and defense liaison to other governments, and he was heavily involved in diplomatic efforts to improve regional security and defense cooperation, which included enhancing the enforcement of export control laws and policy and coordinating counter-proliferation activities with allies. Most recently, Ambassador Al Otaiba has helped to guide Abu Dhabi in multinational discussions on best practices for sovereign wealth funds — an extension of his efforts to promote trade relationships between the UAE and other nations.

Ambassador Al Otaiba obtained a degree in international relations from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., after graduating from the Cairo American College. He also attended the Industrial College of the U.S. Armed Forces at the National Defense University in Washington, D.C., as an international fellow.
