UAE foreign minister backs Palestinian statehood hopes

The UAE foreign minister continues: “We are witnessing today a new trend that will create a better path for the Middle East.”

“This new vision is not a slogan that we raise for political gain as everyone is looking for a more prosperous future,” he adds.

The Emirati top diplomat says Abu Dhabi believes “the role of the US in the Middle East is positive. And this belief [is] evidenced by today’s accord.”

“As for us in the United Arab Emirates, this accord will enable us to continue to stand by the Palestinian people and realize their hopes for an independent state within a stable and prosperous region,” says Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

He also thanks Netanyahu for “halting” West Bank annexation plans as part of the agreement.
