Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed travelled to Riyadh to meet Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz on Saturday.
The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces discussed bilateral relations with the Saudi King as well as matters of regional significance.
The leaders addressed ways of widening collaboration and co-ordination across all fields for the good of both nations and to the best interest of the region in general.
"The UAE-Saudi ties are a model to be copied for how relations between world countries should be, and they reflect the two nations' profound awareness of the regional developments," said Sheikh Mohamed.
The Crown Prince said Saudi Arabia had a pivotal role to play in countering risks besetting the Arab World.
''The UAE will remain steadfast in one trench with its Saudi brothers out of its unequivocal belief in our common goal and destiny,'' he said.
Sheikh Mohamed arrived in Riyadh earlier on Saturday and was welcomed at King Khalid International Airport by Prince Faisal bin Bandar bin Abdul Aziz, Governor of Riyadh.
