UAE welcomes new US policy towards Middle East

posted on 21/11/2001: 666 views


Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed al Nahyan, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, today said that the UAE had welcomed the views expressed by US State Secretary Colin Powell on the Middle East on Monday.



After a meeting with Powell here on Monday, Sheikh Hamdan said that the UAE was delighted by Powell's speech, particularly his announcement of an active, serious and effective US engagement in restarting the peace process and his call for Israel to end its occupation of Palestinian territories and settlements as well as his position on the establishment of a Palestinian state and return of the refugees according to the UN resolutions 242 and 338.



Sheikh Hamdan said that such a policy expressed earlier by US President George Bush at the UN General Assembly and now stated by Colin Powell would lead towards strengthening security and stability in the region.



Sheikh Hamdan said that he agreed with Powell that the American initiative aimed at achieving peace in the Middle East was fundamental for the stability of the region as a whole while it would strengthen the campaign against terrorism as well. The two sides also reviewed the international campaign against terrorism and the need to reactivate the Middle East peace process.



Sheikh Hamdan reaffirmed the UAE's firm position in support of the international coalition against terrorism. For his part, Powell expressed the gratitude and appreciation of US President George Bush to President H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan al Nahyan for the UAE's positive cooperation in the fighting against terrorism. Present at the meeting was Al Asri al Dhaheri, UAE Ambassador to Washington.
