'The UAE has lost a leader who contributed to its establishment along with the late founding father Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and Their Highnesses Supreme Council Members and Rulers of the Emirates,' he said. he late Sheikh Maktoum, he added, had left his conspicuous human marks in all political, economic and developmental life in the UAE, helping the country to become, in a record time, a well-known regional business, financial and leisure hub and a major player on the global economic, trade and financial services.

'He was one of the backbones of development of the UAE. is efforts with other UAE leaders had helped the UAE to secure a leading position at Gulf, Arab and international forums. His life is replete of devotion, dedication and honourable stances,' Al Attiya noted.
