posted on 24/09/2006: 792 views


New York - Foreign Minister, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has lauded China's positive role in the UN Security Council and its support for Arab causes on the Council's agenda. Sheikh Abdullah made these remarks yesterday when he presided over a meeting of the GCC Troika- including Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al Faisal and GCC Secretary General Abdul Rahman Al Attiyah- with China's Foreign Minister Li Zhao Xing.



The two sides exchanged views on the regional and international issues on the agenda of the Security Council and the General Assembly's 61st session, particularly the Palestinian cause and the Arab Initiative.



The two sides agreed on the need for continued support of the Palestinian people in international forums. They also discussed means of bolstering GCC-China cooperation in the trading, investment and economic fields.



Yesterday also, Sheikh Abdullah chaired another meeting of the GCC Foreign Ministers with US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, where the two sides exchanged views on issues of mutual concern, notably the Middle East peace process, and the Arab Initiative which is on the Security Council's agenda. Other issues discussed included developments in Iraq and Iran's nuclear programme.



Later in the day, Sheikh Abdullah attended two meetings. The first one, which brought together Arab foreign Ministers, focused on coordinating Arab diplomatic efforts at the UN to pool international support for the Arab Initiative. The second meeting, between the GCC Troika and the ASEAN Foreign Ministers, discussed bilateral cooperation between the two groups as well as the issues on the General Assembly's agenda.
