Beijing - Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai H.H Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum visited yesterday the Great Wall of China.

Over 400 Heads of states and governments have visited the Wall since it was built in 400 BC to protect the boarders of the Chinese Empire during the successive dynasties.

Sheikh Mohammed was accompanied in his tour by Dubai Deputy Ruler H.H Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Foreign Minister H.H Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Minister for Cabinet Affairs H.E Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Gergawi and a number of senior state officials and diplomats. Sheikh Mohammed and the accompanying officials also took souvenir pictures of the Great Wall.

At the end of the tour Sheikh Mohammed wrote in the visitors' book: ' The Wall of China is one of the wonders of the world. I am honoured visiting this historical landmark on earth'. The Director at the Great Wall Directorate presented Sheikh Mohammed with a memento to mark his visit to the monument. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
