This conversation solidifies UAE efforts in supporting the principles of Peace, Tolerance and Fraternity in the Mena region.
The duo also pledged to collaborate on projects that address food and water security, both of great concern for the UAE and Israel, as well as R&D, aquaculture, agri-technologies and more.
The two ministerial offices will now open a direct channel and work together to lay out a programme for cooperation between the two countries, it added.
