UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan visits Yad Vashem, in the first visit by the top Emirati diplomat to Israel’s national Holocaust memorial.

After touring the Jerusalem museum, Bin Zayed lays a wreath in the Hall of Remembrance.

“I am here today to remind ourselves of the lessons that history teaches us and the great responsibility upon us to act with tolerance for building our community and society,” he writes in the guestbook. “We must take the brave step of building a bridge of true peace for the coming generations.”

Bin Zayed is in Israel to mark two years since Israel, the UAE and Bahrain signed the Abraham Accords, a series of US-backed normalization deals.
