Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum met Sunday in Dubai with visiting President of European Parliament Hans-Gert Poettering over the Mideast peace process and other issues, Emirates News Agency reported.

During the meeting, Sheikh Mohammed stressed that peace in the Middle East, the Gulf and hot zones will not be achieved by armed conflict and violence, the report said.

The long decades of Arab-Israeli conflict has not brought about the aspired peace, security nor social, psychological and economic stability to peoples of the region, and to the Israelis and Palestinians in particular, Sheikh Mohammed said.

The UAE vice president called on the EU countries and the European Parliament to make more efforts to find solutions to the issues and conflicts in the region in a fair and unbiased way so that they gain the trust and respect of peoples of the region who are longing for peace, stability and human and cultural coexistence.

Poettering expressed his approval of the UAE's vision for the region's future through economic development and religions and cultural openness and tolerance.

The UAE leadership's approach to the current global financial crisis is wise and the Gulf country is playing a positive role in facing the global economic recession, he added.
