CAIRO (Reuters) – The UAE Foreign Minister on Friday voiced his country’s concerns over the escalation of Israeli-Palestinian violence, calling for a ceasefire and the start of diplomatic dialogue, state news agency WAM reported.
Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan offered condolences to all victims of the fighting and referred to the promise of the September Accords that made the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain the first Arab states in a quarter of a century to form formal relations with Israel.
“The UAE are alarmed by the escalating spiral of violence in Israel and Palestine. We extend our condolences to all victims of the recent fighting and, together with others, call for an immediate cessation of violence and hostilities,” he said.
“The UAE urges all parties to take immediate steps to reach a ceasefire, initiate political dialogue and exercise maximum restraint,” added the minister.
“We reflect on the promise the Abraham Accords hold for present and future generations to live with their neighbors in peace, dignity and prosperity,” he said, and supported his country in all efforts to ease tension.
