Historical background

The Trucial States of the Persian Gulf coast granted the UK control of their defense and foreign affairs in 19th century treaties.

In 1971, six of these states - Abu Zaby, 'Ajman, Al Fujayrah, Ash Shariqah, Dubayy, and Umm al Qaywayn - merged to form the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

They were joined in 1972 by Ra's al Khaymah.
