France’s Macron holds talks with UAE president


PARIS — French President Emmanuel Macron met on Monday with his Emirati counterpart Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, as the latter makes his first foreign trip as president of the Gulf Arab state.

The UAE leader’s visit to Paris is a testament to the “strength” of bilateral relations, according to an Elysee Palace statement, saying the talks will run the gamut from climate change and technology to the space sector.

The talks will also focus on the two countries’ collective efforts to ensure “regional security and development,” in addition to existential global challenges, it added.

The UAE president arrived in Paris earlier on Sunday for talks with top French officials, which are likely to yield a number of bilateral deals and agreements. — Agencies
