Egypt and UAE leaders discuss need for ‘just and permanent peace’

The leaders of Egypt and the United Arab Emirates discuss the conflict between Israel and Palestinian terrorists.

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi and Emirati President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan agreed on “the importance of… advancing diplomatic efforts that aim to de-escalate violence, protect civilians, spare blood,” a statement from the Egyptian president’s office says.

Such efforts should include establishing “a comprehensive, just and permanent peace,” it adds.

Egypt was the first Arab country to establish diplomatic ties with Israel in the 1970s, and shares borders with both Gaza and Israel. The UAE normalized ties with Jerusalem as part of the US-brokered Abraham Accords in 2020. The Arab Gulf nation has frayed ties with Hamas.
