His Highness General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces received on Tuesday at the Emirates Palace John Boehner, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives who was accompanied by a number of the US Congress members.

Sheikh Mohamed welcomed John Boehner and the delegation members and wished them a pleasant stay in the UAE.

The meeting touched on ties of friendship and cooperation between the UAE and the USA and the keenness by the two countries to enhance them.

Sheikh Mohamed discussed with the delegation members different domains of cooperation and commercial partnership, given that the UAE is one of the United States' key trading partners in the region.

They also reviewed cooperation in the healthcare sector and the progress of work in the Cleveland Clinic Hospital in Abu Dhabi which is scheduled for opening next year.

Sheikh Mohamed presented to the US Congress members key topics of the UAE vision, under the wise leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, including the focus on human capital, seen as the true engine for sustainable development, as well as the drive for a vibrant and diversified knowledge-based economy.

He said the UAE was pressing ahead with its objectives of achieving higher growth rates, maintaining cooperation and friendship with brotherly and friendly countries and building successful partnerships that lead to development and stability of different nations.

"The UAE has made an impressive progress in all fields. Yet, we aim to achieve more, relying on our national capabilities. Our top priorities are education and investing in youth who represent the future of the UAE," he said.

Sheikh Mohamed also highlighted UAE's vision for the developments in the region, saying that the country, through its foreign policy, seeks to work with brotherly and friendly countries to perpetuate stability and development.

This, he went on, requires a joint cooperation to sustain development and to stay away from extremism and conflicts. He added that this choice stems from the experience of the UAE which was established on the principles of developments, values of tolerance and non-intervention in other's affairs.

"We should all cooperate at this critical juncture in the region's history," he added.

Sheikh Mohamed also underlined the efforts made by the UAE, in coordination with the United States and other brotherly and friendly countries, to maintain stability and security in the region and to enable its peoples to co-exist peacefully under a comprehensive and sustainable economic and social development.

Sheikh Mohamed and the Congress members exchanged views on the latest international and regional developments. They also reviewed the initiatives and efforts made to realize peace and stability in the region and the importance of bilateral cooperation in boosting opportunities for peace and development.

The US delegation members said they were impressed with the progress made by the UAE and expressed their country's keenness to continue growing cooperation with the UAE in all fields.
