Sheikh Abdullah pointed out during the meeting that the Middle East region is going through exceptional difficult circumstances and many challenges that, he stressed, necessitate the need to intensify cooperation and multilateral work at all levels to end extremism, tension and escalating violence in the region and reach a sustainable ceasefire.

The UAE FM added that a ceasefire, securing the safety of all civilians and bolstering the humanitarian response to the brotherly Palestinian people is an urgent priority.

“To ensure the success of these endeavours, a unified approach combining all available efforts is imperative,” Sheikh Abdullah stressed.
