UAE and France enjoy strategic relationship

posted on 02/07/2003: 617 views

The UAE Ambassador to France, Saif Sultan Mubarak Al Aryani, yesterday said that the UAE and France enjoyed deep and strategic relationship. In an interview with Gulf Defence magazine on the sidelines of the LE BOURGET Airshow held recently here, Aryani said the UAE-French relationship began when H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan took the rein of power in the UAE and started building UAE relations with friendly countries.

He said that the UAE-French ties had moved from strength to strength from the reign of Charles de Gaulle to Chirac due to Sheikh Zayed's farsightedness in selecting international partners. On UAE-French military partnership, Aryan said that the existence of such joint defence pact could be a good opportunity of creating joint investment and could enable the UAE citizens to participate in French industries in future.

He said that the pact was not one between a seller and buyer but it a strategic one covering all aspects including military industry, thus giving UAE citizens necessary experience in the field. Regarding military exercises between the UAE and France next year, the exercises were an interpretation of the distinguished ties between the two countries. (The Emirates New s Agency, WAM)
