Classified By: AMBASSADOR MICHELE J. SISON, REASONS 1.4 (B) AND (D). 
 
(C) On the margins of a March 28 meeting with CENTCOM 
Commander General Abizaid, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh 
Mohammed bin Zayed indicated that the UAE Government would 
not be able to assist the U.S. in the case of nine Somali 
suspects discussed reftel.  Separately, the UAE has been 
providing medical care to two suspected Somalis pirates 
wounded in the March 18 engagement between U.S. naval vessels 
and Somali pirates off the coast of Somalia.  The exit 
strategy for the two Somalis is unclear; we expect that this 
will make more difficult any future responses on such 
requests.
