Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, yesterday received John Key, the visiting Prime Minister of New Zealand, along with his accompanying delegation.

Sheikh Mohammed emphasised the strong relations at the official and popular levels between the two countries. He noted that the UAE's leadership and government's approach is aimed at extending human and cultural bridges between its people and peoples across the world, as well as expanding its economic, trade and tourism ties for the benefit of international stability and peace.
