Palestine – United Arab Emirates relations are the economic and political relations between the United Arab Emirates and Palestine. The U.A.E. has an embassy in Palestine while Palestine maintains an embassy in Abu Dhabi. Both countries are a part of the Middle-Eastern region and share close cultural ties. Like most Muslim countries, the UAE has supported Palestine's stance on independence and as a result, does not maintain formal relations with Israel. There are hundreds of Palestinian migrants currently living and working in the UAE.
