French foreign minister to arrive in UAE


French Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian was expected to arrive in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday to meet with Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince and launch a new exhibit at the Louvre Abu Dhabi, the French government announced on Monday.

In a statement, France’s foreign ministry noted that Le Drian will hold a meeting with Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces “to exchange views on regional and bilateral issues.”



“Among other things, they will discuss regional crises and all bilateral cooperation projects in the economic, educational, cultural, security and defence fields,” the statement said.

Le Drian has been at the centre of French efforts to push for an in international settlement to bring Syria’s civil war to a close.

Earlier this week, he made headlines around the world by stating that Syrian President Bashar Al Assad “won the war”, becoming one of the highest ranking European or US officials to state they believe a final victory by the Syrian government is imminent.

Additionally, Le Drian is expected to accompany UAE Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development Noura Al Kaabi to launch the second season of the Franco-Emirati cultural dialogue and attend a new exhibition dedicated to French and Japanese art at the Louvre.

The minister has also planned visits to one of six French language schools in the UAE, as well as to Masdar City.
