Foreign Minister H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan met in Abu Dhabi yesterday evening with the heads of UAE missions abroad at the sidelines of their third meeting, currently held in Abu Dhabi.

Sheikh Abdullah exchanged with the heads of missions greetings on the occasion of the Holy Month of Ramadan. He also praised their efforts to project the country's image abroad and to strengthen UAE's relations with the countries of the world.

Sheikh Abdullah wished the diplomats success in their forum and urged more meetings between them to explore best ways to serve their country and their citizens.

He underlined the important role played by veteran diplomats in enriching performance of the foreign services.

"The UAE plays an effective role in several regional and international organisations. Our policies are not dictated by reactions, individuals or regions," Sheikh Abdullah said.

"We view our relations with other countries with great respect and we have friends all over the world. We look forward to boost our rapidly-growing ties with countries such as India, China, Russia, Brazil and South Africa." Sheikh Abdullah stressed the importance of utilizing economic, commercial and investment achievements to promote diplomacy.

He called on the ambassadors to attach a special importance to the country's private sector and to continue their contacts with the UAE businessmen to facilitate UAE investment in the countries to which they are assigned.

He also said that the forum was discussing important issues such as renewable energy, nuclear energy, sovereign funds, human and labour rights in the UAE.

The ambassadors thanked Sheikh Abdullah for his directives and pledged more efforts in performing their duties.

Sheikh Abdullah hosted an Iftar banquet which was attended by H.E. Dr Anwar Mohammed Gargash, Minister of State for foreign Affairs, Saif Sultan Al Aryani, Under Secretary of the Foreign Ministry and the ministry officials. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
