Insightful Vision of UAE for Regional Stability

  • 10 September 2009

His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, has affirmed during his talks with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton the sound views of the UAE on the safety and the stability of the Middle East.
His Highness affirmed the necessity of seeking peaceful and just solution for the Israel-Palestine conflict and the necessity of supporting multi-party efforts in order to reinforce the stability of the Middle East.

Moreover, His Highness’ call for peaceful and fair solution for the Israel – Palestine conflict is in harmony with the stance of the UAE which always avers that peace is key to achieving security, development and stability in the Middle East and that it is important to resolve the historic Palestinian-Israeli issue in order to live peacefully. This solution must be fair so that it would last forever and could fulfill other desirable objectives. The UAE stance is a permanent one, expressed not only verbally but through deeds too. The UAE government has always worked on making an effective contribution to the efforts in order to facilitate the achievement of peace and eliminating any obstacles that could face these efforts.

The stance of the UAE concerning the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not separated from its vision concerning peace and how it would affect its policy; at the internal and external levels. As the state believes that peace is the only way for societies to achieve internal development and advancement, it also believes that peace is the best option for the global society in facing common political, social and economic challenges which are characterized by their natural forces so that it could be defeated effectively through collective effort.

In this situation, UAE supports any effort for achieving stability around the world; either by participating in peace- keeping operations of the United Nations Organization or by contributing in the processes of reconstruction in conflict-ridden areas and by helping people in difficult situations. In this context, it is worth noting the confirmation of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan in Washington, of the strong commitment of the UAE to support the initiatives that aim to achieve stability in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Accordingly, UAE is considered a force stability in both Gulf region and Middle East, and that the whole world considers it as an advocate of development and peace in regional and international affairs. It is worth mentioning that UAE’s views and ideas that are presented on various occasions and events draw great interest that reflects the credibility of the country at the international platform.
