Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan said that “the UAE supports US efforts and the efforts of its envoy to the Middle East, Hady Amr, in order to work to calm the situation, reduce tensions, and stop acts of violence in Israel and Palestine,” WAM reported.

Sheikh Abdullah stressed that the achievement of peace is the only way for peoples of the region to have a future full of hope, stability, development and prosperity.
