 H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs, met with Antony Blinken, US Secretary of State, on the sidelines of the“Call for Action: Urgent Humanitarian Response for Gaza” Conference, held at the King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre in the Dead Sea, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
