The United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Wednesday expressed its support for efforts in promoting and entrenching foundations of peace and stability in the region under the UN umbrella, the official Emirates News Agency reported.
UAE Vice President and Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum voiced the stance while meeting with a group of visiting U.S. senators in Abu Dhabi.
"It is in the interest of the UAE, the region and the world at large, that the culture of peaceful co-existence and inter-dialogue among cultures and nations prevails on the basis of mutual respect and recognition of the other," Sheikh Mohammed was quoted as saying.
The delivery of justice, equality and freedom for peoples of the region are keys to the aspired peace, security and development in the region, he added.
