The United Arab Emirates is strongly standing with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to confront challenges, affirmed His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.
‘‘UAE and Saudi Arabia are standing as partners in one trench to face besetting challenges. Our shared goals are security of the UAE and Saudi Arabia and stability of the whole region. We also share a common destiny and future,” Sheikh Mohamed said while opening the Presidential Guard Martyrs’ Park this evening in Mahawi Camp in Abu Dhabi, in tribute, memory and recognition of the nation’s martyrs and their heroism and sacrifices.
”The ultimate sacrifices offered by our martyrs in defence of right and duty are source of pride and dignity and represent medals of honour and glory for Emiratis generation after generation,” Sheikh Mohamed added.
Sheikh Mohamed noted that states are facing continuous challenges – whether small, big or daunting – and states that want to build themselves and have tracks like those of advanced nations should survive and surmount tremendous challenges and difficulties.
”Our participation in the Arab Coalition and our confrontation to challenges have made the UAE more stronger, vehemently resolve and well aware of how to face difficulties,” Sheikh Mohamed underscored.
Speaking about the Safir incident in Yemen, Sheikh Mohamed said:” The UAE offered precious lives and bloods there, however, we survived that painful day and became more stronger and resolute.
Thanks to Allah, we passed that day with more determination and iron will. Sacrifices of our martyrs are great and the stance of their families are historic and honourable.”
“May the blessings of Allah be upon the parents of martyrs, who raised the generation that we are extremely proud of. We also pray to Allah to have mercy on our martyrs’ souls and to reward their sacrifices with Paradise,” he said.
Sheikh Mohamed also extended thanks to all those who served the country and sacrificed to ensure all Emiratis head are always held high.
