WASHINGTON —

The White House says the crown prince of the Emirati capital of Abu Dhabi will visit with President Barack Obama later this month.

Sheik Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan will meet with Obama at the White House on April 16. They'll discuss economic and defense interests that the U.S. and the United Arab Emirates share in the Gulf region and throughout the Middle East.

The UAE is a major U.S. ally in the Persian Gulf and an important oil producer.

The sheik also is the deputy supreme commander of the UAE's armed forces. He met previously with Obama in 2011 in Washington.
