In a phone call on Saturday, both leaders also examined ways to boost bilateral relations, the latest development sin the Middle East and joint efforts to support regional peace and stability.

Sheikh Mohamed and Mr Macron emphasised the importance of the historic peace accord between the UAE and Israel in strengthening stability, security and peace and in bringing about development and achieving a prosperous future for the people of the region.
