US President Joe Biden discussed the Israel-Hamas war during a phone call earlier today with United Arab Emirates President Mohamed bin Zayed, the White House says.

“The two leaders discussed the situation in the Middle East region and welcomed the recent hostage deal and humanitarian pause, which has enabled a surge in assistance to the people of Gaza,” according to a US readout, which adds that Biden “reiterated the steadfast US commitment to peace and security in the Middle East region.”

The readout says Biden and MBZ also discussed bilateral ties and the upcoming COP28 climate summit in Dubai, which US Vice President Kamala Harris will attend on behalf of the administration.
