The Diplomatic Adviser to the UAE President, Dr. Anwar Gargash, held a meeting with the Special Envoy of the Government of Japan for the Middle East Peace, Ambassador Uemura Tsukasa.

Discussions revolved around various regional and international matters of mutual interest, including ongoing developments in the region and the significance of efforts towards establishing security and stability for peace in the region.

Gargash affirmed the UAE's position calling for a ceasefire and working to create the conditions for a political solution that guarantees the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to establish their independent state.

He stressed the need to address the escalating humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip, protect civilians, and ensure the delivery of aid to alleviate the suffering faced by the residents of Gaza.

Furthermore, he highlighted the necessity of avoiding an expansion of the conflict and returning to sustainable political solutions that can prevent the region from facing recurrent crises.

Gargash also referenced the importance of adhering to the most recent UN Security Council resolution urging an immediate ceasefire in Gaza during the month of Ramadan. He said that prolonging the conflict could have adverse effects on the region and exacerbate the ongoing crises.

Gargash reviewed the UAE's significant humanitarian initiatives in this regard, such as sending relief aid to the Gaza Strip through challenging land crossings, maritime corridors from Cyprus, and airdrops of aid. He also discussed the progress of several projects, including the UAE field hospital, water desalination projects, and other related initiatives.
