The two leaders' meeting — held at the Palace of Fontainebleau in the French capital Paris — covered discussions of bilateral ties as well as regional developments.

Sheikh Mohamed said he was happy to visit France, stressing that his consultations with Macron are ongoing, and that their direct meetings have reinforced their bilateral ties.

The Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Macron talked about the UAE's partnerships with France in the areas of investment, the economy and culture, as well as other vital sectors, which drive sustainable development in both countries.

The meeting also addressed the Covid-19 pandemic and the international efforts to mitigate its humanitarian and economic fallout and return to normalcy. It also covered several regional and global issues, most notably the current situation in Afghanistan.
