On this day, the 2nd of December of 2010, we celebrate the Thirty-ninth anniversary of the establishment of our country the United Arab Emirates. It is symbol of pride, self-giving, hope of unity, stability, determination for growth and development, progress and achievements under the banner of the leader of the nation President His Highness, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. He took the reins of rule to complete the march of virtue, good and prosperity pioneered by the founder of the Union and the lost leader of the Arab and Islamic nation, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

The providence made this anniversary coincide with the demise of father Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammed bin Salem Al Qasimi, casting a shadow of sadness and grief over the celebrations of this anniversary as we lost one of the founding pillars of our federation. He was one of the founders who contributed through their determination and dedication towards creating and building the Federation of UAE and worked to consolidate the foundations and strengthen its position at home and abroad.

The departed soul was brave in his words, noble in his deeds and powerful in his thoughts and ideas.

He was a wonderful leader distinguished with great insight and foresight, he was courteous, whose character was humility and simplicity. He was a just ruler who loved virtues and called his people to science, learning and civilization. He took care of his people, used to receive them, listen to them and insist on solving their problems and overcoming the obstacles facing them.

In this great loss, I share my deep grief, sorrow and sincere condolences with my bothers President HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Their Highnesses the Supreme Council Members and Rulers of Emirates and Al Qawasim family and the people of UAE.

However, as we receive the 39th anniversary of our country, we resolve not to give in or surrender to these trials of life. We welcome this day with more determination to continue the march of progress and prosperity under the wise leadership of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. We will join hands with the leaders and the people continuing our march in order to achieve the ambitions and aspirations of every citizen, the goals which our predecessors endeavoured to achieve.

The great achievements made over the past years in the life of the Union at all levels, both domestic and external, are the fruit of the constant efforts and self-giving, thanks to the wise policy of President His Highness, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. They are the result of the methodology we adopted following the footprints of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and the concerted efforts of Their Highnesses Supreme Council Members and Rulers of the Emirates. which is worthy of pride.

His Highness Sheikh Khalifa translated the visions of the founder of the Union, strengthened the accord and the conciliation among all, and empowered the country's leadership which contributed to the continuity of the efforts and self-giving in order to keep the UAE in the rank of the advanced nations.

HH The President, HH the Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai and Their Highnesses the Supreme Council Members and Rulers of emirates have always been keen on continuing the journey of progress and prosperity keeping pace with developments in various fields on local, regional and international levels.

The care and patronage of HH Sheikh Khalifa for all segments of society in the country is an eternal process that is parallel to meanings of immortality, which were enshrined in the deeds of late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan - not only at the local level but on the international level. We find it in the generosity and the eagerness of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa to send convoys of relief to those affected and to provide assistance to the needy people in all countries, and in his limitless keenness to support humanitarian, Arab and international issues and his contribution for resolving disputes among world countries through his wise consultations.

At the local level, he gave his care to all segments of the society such as children and youth and supported women in various fields opening for them doors of education and employment and enabling them to participate in the nation building.

On this occasion, we also hold in high esteem, the achievements, developments and growth in various fields including science and technology, economy, culture and security. These couldn't have been achieved without the help of God and efforts of our wise leadership represented by the visionary leader of the nation.

As we stand today on the threshold of a new year in our blessed march, I take the opportunity to say that our ambitions will remain high and our determination will intensify under the advice of the leader of our country His Highness, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan to achieve more progress and prosperity for our people and to younger generations.

I pray to God Almighty to help us to accomplish our vision for our homeland and the citizens.
