Berlin - Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum yesterday visited Berlin Town Hall and was received by Klaus Wowereit, Mayor of Berlin.

Wowereit welcomed Sheikh Mohammed and his accompanying delegation, saying that his visit would contribute in further strengthening relations between the UAE and Germany. "Your Highness, you are coming from a country which has a special place in the hearts of German people. Thanks to your efforts and vision, Dubai has become a marvellous fast growing city with high potentials for development in tourism sector. We look forward to increase cooperation in tourism fields," he said.

In the remarks he wrote in the visitors' book of the Red Town Hall, Sheikh Mohammed expressed pleasure at visiting Berlin which he described as "an important destination in the new world, eager for peace, security, construction, justice and solidarity." "The 20th century's major events started in Berlin and ended there with the fall of Berlin wall. This has made Berlin a symbol for global peace and marked the demise of suppression. In this time, the distinguished city is the one that writes its own future, looks forward and provides motivation for creativity and innovation. I see Berlin and Dubai among these cities." Sheikh Mohammed thanked the Mayor of Berlin for the warm hospitality accorded to him and to his accompanying delegation, saying: "We came here to bolster our historic friendship." He expressed the hope that the visit would reflect positively on the bilateral relations and cooperation between the two countries.

Sheikh Mohammed noted that many German companies operate in the UAE which is considered the fastest growing country in the world.

On starting a direct route to Berlin by the Emirates Airlines, Sheikh Mohammed said: "We are not in a hurry as each country has its laws and regulations. On the other hand, our skies will remain open to our friends." Accompanied by the Mayor of Berlin, Sheikh Mohammed visited Brandenburg Gate where he was briefed on the history of the gate which was built in 1788 and is considered one of the city's major landmarks. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
