These principles have always shaped the UAE’s path since the country’s founding.

Al Kaabi emphasised that the UAE favours diplomacy over conflict, partnership over unilateralism, dialogue over confrontation, and urges respect for the principles of good neighbourliness and non-interference in other countries’ internal affairs, while seeking to develop existing alliances and bolster foreign relations to support international stability and peace.

These endeavours aim to mitigate tensions and enhance international cooperation, affirming the importance of prioritising economic prosperity, relations between nations, and de-escalation on regional and international levels.
