Princess Mathilde, wife of Crown Prince Philippe of Belgium yesterday commended the achievements made by UAE women in various areas. In remarks during a visit to the premises of the UAE General Women's Union (GWU), Princess Mathilde hailed the leadership of Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, the President's wife and Chairwoman of the GWU, saying that her pioneering leadership made it possible for UAE women to achieve remarkable successes as part of the overall progress of the UAE.

Princess Mathilde toured the various sections of the GWU and later watched a documentary featuring the progress of the GWU since its formation in 1975. Commenting on the visit of Princess Mathilde, Noura Al Suweidi, Director of GWU said the princess' visit would enhance cooperation between women organisations in the two countries.

"This cooperation would certainly serve the best interest of women as it would strengthen relations,” said Al Suweidi, adding that Sheikha Fatima is keen to promote dialogue among friendly and sisterly countries on the basis of common grounds between civilisations.

Suweidi further pointed out that Sheikha Fatima is keen to build strong and cordial relations between countries on the basis of mutual respect and in a manner that would reinforce global peace and stability. "The visit of Princess Mathilde is an opportunity to exchange views with the ultimate aim of promoting the culture of peace and understating amongst world nations. It has long been a strong conviction of Sheikha Fatima that the world would be a better place for all if greater understanding between world cultures is attained through dialogue.
