Deputy Prime Minister, Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, received here yesterday at his palace in Al Nakheel Former German Chancellor, Gerhard Schroeder. During the meeting, they announced the setting up of a UAE-Germany Friendship Council with Sheikh Hamdan heading the UAE side and Schroeder the German side.

Sheikh Hamdan warmly welcomed the former German Chancellor and expressed the hope that the newly established Council would further boost the existing relations of friendship between the UAE and the Federal Republic of Germany. The setting of the Council reflects a success story of the great efforts exerted by senior officials from both countries to build strong economic, political and cultural ties.

In a statement, Sheikh Hamdan expressed his country's admiration of Germany's experience in various economic areas. "We watch with great admiration Germany's experience in various areas of economic development. We see it as one of the most successful models from where we continue to derive great benefit," Sheikh Hamdan said.

The UAE Deputy Prime Minister called for probing for wider avenues of cooperation between the two countries and expressed deep appreciation for Germany's support for Arab and international causes. "We in the UAE really appreciate the role that the Federal Republic of Germany plays in support of Arab and International causes," he added.

Schroeder, for his part, expressed profound happiness for visiting once again the UAE, which, he said, is Germany's strategic partner in various areas. It would be recalled that Sheikh Hamdan made a high profile visit to Berlin which boosted relations of economic, political and cultural cooperation between the two countries.

Sheikh Hamdan held in honour of his guest a luncheon which was attended by a number of officials including the Chief of the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, Sultan bin Khalfan Al Rumaithy. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
