His Highness emphasised the importance of speeding up practical steps towards implementing the initiative’s projects, to best serve the three countries and future generations. 

The current global crises and challenges, notably those related to energy and food security, require further cooperation and self-reliance, as well as learning from the previous global experiences, particularly those that came during the COVID-19 pandemic, Sheikh Mohamed said.  

They also emphasised continuing to strengthen trilateral relations and maintaining consultation and coordination on various Arab, regional and international issues.
