H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs met with James Cleverly, UK Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, in London to discuss the latest developments in the region and the ongoing escalation on the Palestinian-Israeli track.

The UAE top diplomat underscored the seriousness of the escalation that began in Gaza and its role in increasing tensions in the region and threatening its security and stability.

The two sides stressed the importance of coordination between all active international parties to contain the current crisis through all possible means and solutions, as well as to address all provocative actions that aim to destabilise the region and threaten its peoples.

Sheikh Abdullah also affirmed that the UAE-UK cooperation levels are steadily growing based on the 'Partnership for the Future' that unites the two countries and aims to achieve sustainable prosperity for their peoples.

The talks between the two sides also touched on the latest developments on the border between Serbia and Kosovo, ways to reduce tensions between the two sides, and the importance of adhering to dialogue under the auspices of the European Union.

In this regard, Sheikh Abdullah affirmed the UAE's support for all efforts to achieve peace and stability in the Western Balkans region.
