Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan has conferred the Order of Independence of first degree on UNRWA's Commissioner-General, Peter Hansen, in recognition of the latter's efforts and humanitarian services to the Palestinian people throughout the period of his tenure, which ends at the end of this month.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who is also the Chairman of the UAE Red Crescent Society, RCS, decorated Hansen with the Order when he received the Commissioner here today at the Al Nakheel Palace. Sheikh Hamdan congratulated Hansen and wished him success in his future assignment.

Hansen, for his part, expressed profound gratitude and appreciation for President Khalifa for doing him the great honour. He commended Sheikh Khalifa for his wise policy, the role he plays at the regional and international levels and for UAE's support for the programmes and activities of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East, UNRWA.

"The awarding of this Order to me was a great honour to me and to all staff of the UNRWA. I'm really proud of it. I'm really moved by this honour," he said, adding that he regarded the award a great honour to him and all the staff of the UNRWA and an expression of great appreciation for their efforts and services for the Palestinian refugees.

During the meeting, they discussed a number of issues related to the execution of RCS projects in Palestinian towns.
