UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed and his Italian counterpart Luigi Di Maio discussed a number of regional and international issues, including the latest developments in Libya and Iran, in addition to the eastern Mediterranean region.
The two parties chaired the fourth "strategic dialogue" between the two countries, which was held in Abu Dhabi, according to a statement by the Emirati Foreign Ministry, reported by the Italian news agency AKI, on Monday.
The strategic dialogue dealt with bilateral relations between the two countries, and ways to enhance and develop joint cooperation in a number of fields, including economic, trade and cultural.
The two ministers also reviewed "developments in the coronavirus pandemic and their efforts to confront it, in addition to supporting global efforts to find a vaccine for the disease."
It is noteworthy that the Libyan Dialogue Forum, held in Tunis, was opened yesterday, with a word from the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General of the United Nations to Libya, Stephanie Williams, who confirmed that it would not have taken place without the signing of the permanent ceasefire agreement on the 23rd of October.
