Longstanding and Strong Relations with Brotherly Countries

  • 2 May 2016

The meeting between His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and His Majesty King Mohammed VI of the brotherly Kingdom of Morocco yesterday in Abu Dhabi is reflective of the depth of relations between the UAE and Morocco and shows that the leadership in the two countries is keen to promote bilateral ties to the best interest of the two peoples.

The talks between the two leaders dealt with the means to further boost the bilateral relations permeated by brotherliness and mutual cooperation on several regional and international issues.

It was also an occasion for His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan to highlight the steadily growing brotherly ties between the UAE and Morocco whose seeds were sowed by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and late King Hassan II- may God bless their souls. The late leaders have laid the foundations for strengthening ties between the two countries and the current leadership is faithful to this path, said His Highness His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

His Highness’s remarks are reflective of the time-honoured relations between the UAE and Morocco, part of an Emirati engagement to reinforce ties with Arab countries on the basis of the belonging to the Arab Ummah united by religion, history and language as well as the same destiny. Hence, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan always advocated inter-Arab solidarity and cooperation.

The talks between His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Majesty King Mohammed VI also mirror the principles on which relations between the two countries are grounded. These principles continue to be upheld by the UAE leadership spearheaded by His Highness President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan- may God protect him- and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai- may God protect him- and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces- may God protect him- who all work to promote bilateral relations with Morocco on the basis of solidarity and cooperation in all fields.

The excellent and deep Emirati-Moroccan relations now stand as a model for bilateral relations between Arab brotherly countries. This is more so at the current context marked by turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa. The scale of challenges and terrorist threats to the security and stability of societies in the region require closer cooperation and coordination to unify stands and efforts within the framework of joint Arab action. Efforts should also be undertaken to spread the values of tolerant Islam and coexistence in order to secure Arab countries and achieve the aspirations of their people to a brighter future.
