In Dubai for the UN climate conference, President Isaac Herzog meets with Emirati leader Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan as part of Israel’s efforts to secure the return of hostages being held by Hamas terrorists in Gaza.

Herzog’s office says he asked the UAE president, who is commonly referred to by his initials MBZ, to use his “full diplomatic weight” to help bring the hostages back, while the latter stressed the need to let humanitarian aid into Gaza.

The president is accompanied during the meeting by Tzachi Hanegbi, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s national security adviser, and other officials.
