posted on 02/12/2002: 1367 views

H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah has congratulated President H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and other members of the Supreme Council and Rulers of the emirates on the 31st anniversary of the UAE National Day. In a statement to "Dir al Watan”, on the occasion, Sheikh Sultan praised the achievements of the federation, which, he said, was a very successful experience, which continues to grow from strength to strength.

He attributed the success to the noble objectives which the country was working to achieve under the wise and able leadership of Sheikh Zayed and to the clear and sincere vision on which the federation was built.

This vision, he said, placed the interest of the country and its people before any other interest. Thanks to the combined efforts of all to raise the UAE flag, the dream of the country and its people has become a reality, he said. He said that the situation of the Arab nation, testifies the success story of our federation experience. This experience beckon on Arab leaders to study critically the need to activate the factors of Arab unity, which God bestows on them so as to avert the dangers of division and weakness threatening them, and to be able to face those challenges squarely.

"In the light of the challenges facing our nation today, unity among Arabs have become compulsory. It has even become necessary so as to survive and co-exist with the new world order, which has its own calculations, calculations which have no respect for anything other than power and strength.

Our strength, certainly, lies in our unity, he said. Sheikh Sultan expressed his happiness on the occasion, which, he said, was a reminder of the power of determination, selflessness and unity for the sake of achieving a great dream... the dream of the UAE federation. The Sharjah Ruler also congratulated the UAE people on this happy occasion. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
