We pledge that we will continue their march and appreciate their sacrifices for ever."

The text is as follows: 'On this great day, the UAE, its people and history commemorate those brave people who sacrificed their lives and hoisted its flag high. We and our brothers celebrate Commemoration Day with a new spirit in our country, in which we feel pride for those who sacrificed their lives to protect the security of their country and future of the region, those people who offered their prayers and prayed for Allah Almighty to grant them martyrdom.

On this day, we feel pride for those brave heroes as we show them all kinds of respect and appreciation. All our deeds and achievements cannot be compared to theirs.

We proclaim that they are brave people who wrote a new history and vanquished their enemies to bring victory, to defend against injustice and respond to the call of their leadership in all circumstances.

On this day, we promise that we will continue their march of sacrifice and commemorate their anniversary as long as we live. We also celebrate and honour their parents and families who sacrificed their sons, and, at the same time, are ready to make more sacrifices. We also celebrate and honour the injured soldiers who have sworn to return to the battlefield, to continue the march of honour and acts of heroism. We celebrate the sons of martyrs who are always satisfied by their fathers' sacrifices and deeds.

Commemoration Day marks the beginning of a new era in the UAE, an era of sacrifice for the sake of the homeland, an era of those who are ready to sacrifice every precious thing for the sake of the nation's future and enhance cohesion and integration with its leadership, aimed to safeguard its stability and interests.

Brothers, National Day of this year is a source of double happiness and pride, as this year's celebration is dedicated to our martyrs and our top achievements; the sacrificing of our sons for the sake of defending the right and supporting legitimacy, preserving the security and stability of GCC states and the homeland of the Two Holy Mosques.

On the UAE's 44th National Day, our country has become stronger, our people are more cohesive, our country is more stable and secure and has more respect and appreciation among other nations and peoples.

We pray to Almighty Allah to accept our martyrs, preserve our country, grant us permanent security and stability and more work and achievements for the benefit of our people and our country." – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
