H.H. Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Fujairah, made a statement to The Nation Shield magazine on the occasion of the UAE's 44th National Day.

The following is the statement in full: "44 years have passed since the establishment of our beloved nation on land where our country's roots extend for thousands of years, and these 44 years of working and building the pillars of the union, based on the solid foundation of human beings, and the visions of the founding fathers; those who believed in the nation and its unity and made their visions and dreams come true by enabling the nation to lead the world today in many fields of innovation and development.

Recently, our country witnessed the participation of our Armed Forces within the Saudi-led Arab coalition to restore hope in Yemen, in which our sons proved, to the whole world, the greatness of our country, where our sons' sacrifices demonstrate an example of loyalty. They became martyrs to the right and the noble idea, they are a clear example of our country's unity and faith in our homeland. We pray to Allah Almighty to rest their souls in internal peace.

Our brave sons the martyrs and the first batch of the Armed Forces who returned from Yemen, those who are still completing the work their fellow soldiers began in the Saudi led Arab coalition, they all performed, and are still performing their duties to the fullest, all of them have defended right and raised the United Arab Emirates flag in the skies of pride and glory. We appreciate their sacrifices in civil, military and humanitarian fields.

Every year on 2nd December, we remember this great day in our history, we remember the achievements made by our founding leaders, may Allah have mercy upon their souls, and we are working very hard to maintain this unique legacy for a country that built itself to be among the world's most developed countries with the help of Allah and the visions of the great nation builders. It is a day that will always remain in the hearts and minds of UAE citizens. It is also a day to renew our covenant and reaffirm our loyalty.

On the occasion of the 44th National Day, I extend my sincere congratulations and blessings to President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, to the Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to Their Highnesses the Supreme Council Members and Rulers of the Emirates and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to the loyal people of the UAE and our sons, the Armed Forces members.

Today we realise that we don t live in isolation from the world; the changes and the development witnessed in the country require us to constantly adopt strategies to promote and enhance stability and to maintain regional and international peace and security and to unify the visions and efforts to meet the challenges threatening the country's security and stability. The recent past incidents reflect an image of cooperation between countries in the region who address the risks.

We build our country on the pillars of knowledge and goodness, as our founding fathers laid its foundation, and today, our wise leadership puts great importance on encouraging the spirit of innovation, and creating an environment that promotes research and exploration to keep pace with the rapid evolution of the world. President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan exemplified this importance by proclaiming 2015 as the year of innovation, in support of the federal government, to intensify the excellent research efforts and to promote the efforts of building distinguished national cadres. We are continuing the march of progress and prosperity with the help of Allah as we raise the Union flag high to strengthen its pillars with continues achievements, empowerment of our citizen, and by providing a decent living.

In conclusion, I ask Allah Almighty to have mercy on the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, to sustain our security and stability, to protect our sons in the Armed Forces and to bless our homeland with pride and stamina under the wise leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan." – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
