The United Arab Emirates is waiting for the conclusions from Saudi Arabia’s investigation into Saturday’s drone attacks, foreign ministry official Hend Mana al-Otaiba said on Sunday.

Al-Otaiba said in a media briefing, which previewed the UAE's priorities in the upcoming United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), that the country's focus is on “protecting and building the foundations of prosperity: stability, security, healthy institutions, rule of law, diverse economies and peaceful coexistence.”

Al-Otaiba also said the UAE continues to support the United Nations and its special envoy’s diplomatic efforts in Yemen. She added that the UAE will meet its full aid commitment to Yemen for this year.

The UAE delegation to the UNGA will include al-Otaiba, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash and Minister of State for International Cooperation Reem Al Hashimy.

Al-Otaiba said one of the UAE delegation’s key objectives during the UNGA would be to strengthen multilateral cooperation and the role of international organizations such as the UN.
