ABU DHABI - Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, will visit France on Wednesday.
Sheikh Mohamed is expected to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris to deliberate the prospects of consolidating the strategic cooperation between the two friendly nations in addition to reviewing a number of issues of interest and the latest developments in the region, reported the UAE’s official news agency WAM.
Sheikh Mohamed’s last official visit to France was in November 2018.
