UAE foreign affairs minister in call with US’ Blinken




Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the UAE, had a phone conversation with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken. The discussion focused on the strategic bilateral relations between the two countries, as well as their collaboration and partnership in various domains.
During the conversation, the minister said he treasured the support extended by the US for a historic resolution which was adopted last month by the UN Security Council (UNSC) for tolerance, international peace and security.

The resolution, which was drafted by the UAE and UK, recognises for the first time that hate speech, intolerance and extremism can contribute to conflicts.

Sheikh Abdullah thanked Blinken for the US’s support for the UNSC resolution, affirming that the UAE and US shared visions about the importance of deepening the values of tolerance and coexistence and enhancing regional and international peace and stability.

The two also discussed the latest developments in the region with an eye on the current events in the Jenin camp.

They also reviewed an array of regional and global issues of common interest including Syria, Yemen and West Balkan.
