His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces met French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday.

They held talks at the historic Fontainebleau Chateau, near Paris, with the discussions focusing on strategic relations as well as regional and international developments, including the current situation in Afghanistan.

During the meeting, Sheikh Mohamed and President Macron discussed bilateral cooperation in the areas of investment, economy and culture, and other vital sectors.

The talks also touched on the COVID-19 pandemic and the international efforts to mitigate its humanitarian and economic fallout and return to normalcy.

Macron hailed the UAE’s support in evacuating foreign citizens from Afghanistan.

Both sides then affirmed the importance of achieving security, peace and stability in the region through diplomatic means and constructive dialogue.

Sheikh Mohamed, accompanied by President Macron, toured the Palace of Fontainebleau and visited the "Imperial Theatre", which was renamed the "Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Theatre" as its maintenance cost was covered by the UAE's President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
