Bin Zayed, known as MBZ, is the president of the United Arab Emirates and the ruler of Abu Dhabi. In August 2020 he signed the Abraham Accords to normalize relations between the UAE and Israel. Refusing to put the Palestinian cause ahead of his country’s interests, he has led the emirates in building social, security and economic ties as well as diplomatic connections.
