UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan has discussed the urgent need to intensify aid delivery to Gaza with Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdurrahman bin Jassim Al Thani during his working visit to Doha.

During the meeting, Sheikh Abdullah and Al Thani, who also holds the position of Minister of Foreign Affairs, highlighted the need to open more humanitarian corridors, following the setting up of the maritime corridor, to ensure aid is transported at a sufficient and sustainable pace into Gaza.
