During the call, the UAE President stressed the UAE’s keenness to cooperate with the United Nations and various parties regionally and internationally in order to maintain peace in light of the difficult circumstances that the region is experiencing.

For his part, Antonio Guterres expressed his appreciation for the UAE’s support for peace and its notable global humanitarian efforts, particularly in providing assistance to civilians in the Gaza Strip. (ANI/WAM)
