The UAE National Day celebrations is considered one of the most important milestones in our history and the start of our nation's renaissance and prosperity at all levels, based on the solid foundation built by our founding fathers, led by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Today, we are proud of our country as a model of progress, development, prosperity and an oasis of security and safety under the wise leadership of H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and his brother H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. They charted an approach to excellence to be able to achieve high aspirations to become among the world's most advanced nations by the year 2021. As we celebrate the 46th anniversary of the founding of the Union, we are honoured to renew our feelings of loyalty and belonging to this blessed land and affirm our support to our great leaders, who have instilled in us the values of coexistence, tolerance and patriotism.
We renew our pledge to support the efforts to create a more secure and prosperous future for present and future generations. In conclusion, I am pleased to congratulate the leadership and the people of the United Arab Emirates on this precious occasion, seeking the Almighty to preserve our land, which exports the culture of peace, stability and openness to the rest of the world. May God help us all to serve the country.”
