External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid joined from Israel and UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and US Secretary of State Antony Blinken joined the virtual meeting from their respective capitals.

US State Department Spokesperson Ned Price said the four Foreign Ministers met virtually today as they share “many interests” and discussed issues related to maritime security, energy cooperation and climate change.

The stage for the quadrilateral was set last Wednesday when the three Foreign Ministers from the US, the UAE and Israel had met in Washington. The basis was the Abraham Accords signed between the US, UAE and Israel in August 2020.
