Thank you for your reading and interest in the news Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed: support for the Palestinian cause is unwavering and now with details
Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation, has sent a message to the Palestinian community in the UAE to tell them that the country's support for the Palestinian cause is unshakable.
"As the UAE is taking a sovereign decision today for the sake of delivering a peaceful future in the region, I assure you that you’re living in your second homeland," he said in a virtual meeting with representatives of the Palestinian community in the UAE.
"I assure you anew that these unshakable bonds between the UAE and the Palestinians will remain solid and will never change."
He said the UAE’s stance will remain supportive of the collective Arab position that calls for establishing an independent Palestinian state with occupied East Jerusalem as its capital.
"We will continue to support the Palestinian cause based on our historic stance that stems from a deeply rooted, unshakable belief that will never change as a result of any considerations," Sheikh Abdullah said.
"I’d like to assure all the audience here that the UAE sees peace-building as a strategic necessity for the region. However, this strategic necessity will not come at the expense of our support for the Palestinian cause and the rights of our fraternal Palestinian people."
The visit of a US and Israeli delegation follows the announcement of the Abraham Accord on August 13 to normalise relations between the UAE and Israel.
The UAE, US and Israel reaffirmed on Monday evening that the accord reached by the three nations is "a courageous step towards a more stable, integrated and prosperous Middle East."
The conclusion came in a three-nation statement issued during the visit to the UAE by a top US-Israeli delegation, led by Jared Kushner, senior adviser to US President Donald Trump.
Their statement said: "It inverts traditional thinking about the way to address the region’s problems and challenges, focusing on pragmatic steps that have tangible, practical outcomes."
As part of the accord, Israel will halt all annexation of Palestinian territories in exchange for establishing diplomatic ties with the Emirates.
The delegation arrived on the first commercial flight between the UAE and Israel.
The visiting group comprised US National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien and Meir Ben-Shabbat, head of the Israeli National Security Council, among others.
