  • 4 September 2013

The Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research (ECSSR) has said that the visit to the Egyptian capital by His Highness General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, affirms the keenness of the UAE to support Egypt in this difficult phase in its history.

In an editorial entitled: "UAE confirmation to support Egypt", the ECSSR daily bulletin, Akhbar Al Sa'a (News of the Hour), noted that during this visit, H.H. Sheikh Mohammed highlighted several major points affirming the UAE's support for Egypt's stability.

The first of these is that the UAE, under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, continues to provide support for Egypt, to help serve development plans.

The second point is that the UAE's stance towards Egypt is a fraternal duty, and demonstrates the nation's keenness to help get Egypt out of the current crisis and move towards a prosperous future.

A third point for consideration is the UAE's satisfaction in the return of security and stability to Egypt, that this reflects a genuine belief that a strong and stable Egypt is the power and the pillar of the renaissance of the Arab world and the Islamic nation .

The ECSSR added that the UAE 's support for Egypt is in essence an extension of the deep relations established by the founding leader, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and continued under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
