His Highness Sheikh Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Chairman of Abu Dhabi Executive Council, has sent his congratulations to Saudi Arabia.
Sheikh Hazza congratulated the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence of Saudi Arabia.
His Highness wished King Salman, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the brotherly people of the Kingdom, further progress, prosperity, and lasting success.
The UAE’s official and public participation in this year’s celebration, held under the slogan, "Together Forever", reaffirms the deep ties between the two nations.
Throughout history, the relations between the two countries have guaranteed the security of Gulf Cooperation Council, GCC, and Arab countries, in light of their shared views on the region’s affairs and their cooperation in addressing the challenges facing the Middle East, most notably combatting extremism, terrorism and foreign interventions.
The historic ties between the UAE and Saudi Arabia were officially consolidated by the efforts of the late leaders: Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and King Faisal bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, who were keen to establish their coordination and cooperation.
Their bilateral ties, under the leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, were advanced to a comprehensive strategic partnership.
Over the few past years, the two countries united their efforts and consolidated their overall bilateral integration, in light of a clear vision represented by the Al Azm (Determination) Strategy, the outcomes of the "Saudi-Emirati Coordination Council" and "Operation Decisive Storm."
The strong relations between the two countries have helped maintain the security and stability of the region and the entire world, especially as their related efforts are full of initiatives aimed at settling Arab disputes and supporting Arab countries.
