Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, attended a meeting in Sharm El Sheikh with Egypt's President Abdel Fattah El Sisi and Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.

The meeting focused on strengthening relations between their countries and the importance of cooperation, coordination and consultation to meet the aspirations of development and stability in the region, according to state news agency Wam.

The three leaders also discussed energy security and the stability of global markets.

Sheikh Mohamed arrived in Sharm El Sheikh on Monday and was accompanied on the visit by Sheikh Hazza bin Zayed, deputy chairman of Abu Dhabi Executive Council, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohamed, Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad, adviser for special affairs at the Ministry of Presidential Affairs, Reem Al Hashimy, Minister of State for International Co-operation, Ali Al Shamsi, deputy secretary general of the Supreme National Security Council, and Mohamed Al Mazrouei, undersecretary of Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Court.

An Egyptian presidential statement said the three leaders also discussed the fallout from "international developments, especially concerning energy and the stability of markets and food sufficiency."

The three leaders also exchanged "perspectives and views" on the latest developments of regional and international issues, the statement added.

Tuesday's meeting was the first to bring together the three leaders since the United Arab Emirates established ties with Israel in 2020. Egypt in 1979 became the first Arab state to sign a peace treaty with Israel.

"The leaders discussed ties between the three countries in the context of recent developments in the world and the region, and the ways to strengthen them on all levels," a statement from the Israeli prime minister's office said.
