UAE Foreign Minister: Saudi Arabia spreads peace under King Salman’s support

Published: Updated:

United Arab Emirates Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed said on Sunday that Saudi Arabia, under the leadership of King Salman, helps spread peace after Ethiopia and Eritrea signed a historic peace deal in Jeddah.

Ethiopia's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and Eritrea's President Isaias Afwerki signed a peace pact in July ending two decades of enmity sparked by a two-year border conflict which broke out in 1998.

Saudi King Salman hosted the signing ceremony which was also attended by his son, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
