The United Arab Emirates is “ready to work with all parties to maintain the ceasefire [between Israel and Hamas],” de facto Emirati head of state Mohammad bin Zayed tells Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.

Bin Zayed makes the remarks in a phone call between the two leaders, according to a statement published by Emirati government media. He also congratulates Sissi for the role Egypt played in mediating the recent ceasefire.

The UAE is prepared to “explore new paths to de-escalate and achieve peace,” bin Zayed says.
