On Wednesday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson landed in the UAE as part of an official tour of the region.
Johnson was greeted by Anwar Mohammed Gargash, UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s Diplomatic Advisor, as well as a number of other officials.
“I’m in Saudi Arabia and the UAE, which are crucial partners in ensuring regional security and stabilizing global energy markets following Russia’s extraordinary, violent, and unlawful invasion,” Johnson wrote on Twitter.
We face a new reality, which we have to confront together with our allies.
I'm visiting Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, who are key partners in ensuring regional security and stabilising global energy markets after Russia’s unprecedented, brutal and illegal invasion. https://t.co/ILNwWHnEtm
