President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan maintained close contact with Arab and foreign leaders to halt the violence and escalation in Gaza, rallying international cooperation, upholding international humanitarian law, and safeguarding civilian lives from further suffering amidst the deteriorating situation.
He engaged in conversations with King Abdullah II of Jordan, Abdel Fattah El-Sisi of Egypt, Ursula von der Leyen of the European Commission, and Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel. His Highness emphasized the urgent need to protect civilians, particularly children, women, and the elderly, while also advocating for the release of hostages.
His discussions stressed the immediate necessity of opening unhindered humanitarian corridors for aid delivery to Gaza and ensuring their security, enabling humanitarian organizations to fulfill their responsibilities, thus preventing the worsening of civilian suffering in the midst of this conflict, which affects over two million mostly innocent civilians.
These conversations highlighted the significance of boosting regional and global efforts to prevent further violence and its implications on regional and international stability and peace.
