H.H. Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Fujairah, in a statement to 'Dira'a Al Watan' magazine on the occasion of the 43rd National Day, has said that, "The celebration is a day to recall the memory of those who laid the foundations of cohesion and cooperation and worked hard, with dedication, to build the union as a solid base on which we can now stand, to meditate on all the events experienced by the union and on how we started with the simplest models of growth to reach the finest development models." The following is the full statement of H.H. Sheikh Hamad to 'Dira'a Al Watan' magazine: "Today the United Arab Emirates celebrates its forty third National Day, observing the unprecedented achievements that it has accomplished, thanks to its wise leadership, and its social cohesion. This has made Union Day a great occasion on which to recall the outstanding efforts made by the founding fathers, and to work to enhance the concept of the union in every achievement we accomplish with every new day.

The great achievements accomplished by the United Arab Emirates, its good reputation and the prominent stature held by the country amidst the nations, encourage us all to work harder, in order to preserve the gains and to entrench the Spirit of the Union, giving us confidence that we are on the path of leadership with excellent steps and a confident and clear vision.

On this blessed day, I extend my sincere congratulations and blessings to President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, to the Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to Their Highnesses the Supreme Council Members and Rulers of the Emirates and to the loyal people of the UAE.

On the second of December, we remember those who laid the foundations of cohesion and cooperation and who worked hard, with dedication, to build the union as a solid base on which we can now stand, to meditate on all the events experienced by the union and on how we started with the simplest models of growth to reach the finest development models in building our human capital and our urban infrastructure." This day is a memory fresh in our minds, from generation to generation, a day in which we take pride in our experience of unity, wherever we are. It is also a day to renew our covenant and to reaffirm ourloyalty, to continue following the approach of the founders of the union, under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, to complete what they began and to maintain the success story that we have achieved in just few years of work and dedication.

Wherever we are, we can notice the UAE's distinctive achievements and successes in various fields, helping the country to assume its prominent stature, both developmentally and culturally, among developed countries. These achievements can be attributed to the UAE's wise leadership as they follow the approach of the founding leader, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

Our aspirations and ambitions for the development of our country are limitless; we are dedicated to continuous development, deepening the concept of sustainable development, a strategy set up by His Highness the Head of State, focused on the implementation of the overall development plans and investment in human resources. To achieve success, this strategy requires great effort in the building of human capital and in the provision of education to all, so as to nurture generations who are conscious and able to keep pace with the challenges of the modern era. Education has become an urgent necessity to develop the homeland and its citizenry.

We are determined to be active in the international community by following a foreign policy that continuously strengthens the UAE's prestigious international stature, out of its sincere desire and belief to establish the principles of right and justice, to strive to build bridges of communication and cooperation that will support the achievement of international peace and security and to spread the elements of a feeling of closeness and friendship among nations and peoples.

In conclusion, I ask Allah to bless our beloved homeland with pride and stamina. May He grant His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, health and wellbeing and have mercy on the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan." – Emirates News Agency, WAM
