Prime Minister Naftali Bennett meets with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan in Sharm el-Sheikh, Sissi’s office announces.

A picture is released of the three leaders.

According to the Egyptian president’s office, the three leaders discuss the consequences of “global developments” — likely referring to the Russia-Ukraine War — on energy, market stability, and food security.

They also discuss “the latest updates on a number of international and regional issues.” Among those issues, presumably, are the stalled talks on Iran’s nuclear program in Vienna.

Bin Zayed, known colloquially as MBZ, is seen as the UAE’s de facto ruler.
