The Information Office of the Deputy Prime Minister Sheikh Sultan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan yesterday hosted a symposium on President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan's achievements. The symposium, Leader Sheikh Khalifa: Analytical Reading of the Publications of the Information Affairs Office, was addressed by prominent leaders and officials from several Arab and European countries.

Sheikh Sultan hailed Sheikh Khalifa as a man with high values and noble characteristics who was able to achieve his people's expectations. "Through such an interaction, His Highness has managed to make people's hopes a concrete reality that encompass all aspects of development. "He has made a habit of interacting with people, opening his heart and mind to know their views and the problems they face in order to solve them," he said.

The Deputy Prime Minister added the achievements would continue. These would enable the UAE to take its deserved place among advanced nations. Dr George Deeb, the Lebanese President's Advisor on International Affairs, said Sheikh Khalifa knew how to adopt and revive the wisdom of the founder of the nation.

"The most significant aspect of Sheikh Khalifa's political philosophy at the international level are his endeavours to promote international relations through a balanced policy, and his comprehensive understanding of issues that have emerged on the international stage," he said.

Dr Udo Steinbach, Director of the German Institute for Middle East Studies, shed light on the UAE-European Union relations. He praised them, stating the UAE was in a position to lead the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to establish better relations with Europe.

"Given the open-mindedness of its leadership, the pragmatic character of its elite and its multicultural tolerance, the UAE is qualified to play a great role in the international arena, by strengthening relations with Europe and the rest of the world," said Steinbach.

Dr Alexander Shumilin, the Director of the Moscow-based Centre for Greater Middle East Studies, said Sheikh Khalifa was a leader who was highly appreciated in the world. He added the role of the UAE in international cooperation deserved to be studied. The Russian version of Khalifa and International Cooperation, which has been published by the Information Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, tackles the efforts of the President in strengthening relations with the Russian Federation.
