ABU DHABI, 13th January, 2022 (WAM) -- H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, received a high-level delegation from the UK Abraham Accords Group, a non-profit organisation that aims to support the implementation of the historic Abraham Accords in the Middle East.
Sheikh Abdullah met with the Rt Hon Dr. Liam Fox MP, former UK Secretary of State for Defense and Chair of the Group, along with the delegation members and several British MPs, including Mark Garnier MP, Vice Chair of the International Trade Select Committee, Stephen Crabb, Parliamentary Chairman of Conservative Friends of Israel, and Dr. Lisa Cameron MP, Vice Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Foreign Affairs.

The meeting also explored enhancing strategic ties between the UAE and the UK and their cooperation and coordination to promote security and stability in the region.
Sheikh Abdullah welcomed the delegation's visit, lauding their positive and tangible contributions to supporting the peace accords in the Middle East.
He also commended the group’s work, which led to the signing of a cooperation agreement with Sharaka, a non-profit organisation founded by youth from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and Israel.
He stressed that peace contributes to building bridges of tolerance and coexistence among peoples and meets their aspirations for development, progress and prosperity.
Capitalising on the Abraham Accords will help improve security in the region, establish stable communities and ensure a brighter future, Sheikh Abdullah added.
