UAE has done its utmost to alleviate war miseries in Iraq: Sheikh Hamdan

Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, has said that events in Iraq bear witness to the attention paid by the United Arab Emirates to humanitarian issues in a bid to mitigate risks of wars and disputes and their repercussions on civilians. In a foreword to the latest edition of the "Al Hilal" magazine, published by the UAE Red Crescent, Sheikh Hamdan said that the policy pursued by President H.H Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, since the early signs of war on Iraq, was to exert every effort to stave off war miseries on Iraqi people.



Sheikh Hamdan, also RCS Chairman, noted that Sheikh Zayed's overture made just before the start of military offensive on Iraq was " the last chance to avoid war" in the belief that war would leave but destruction and displacement of people. "The far-sighted vision of the President has not been confined to the war on Iraq, but a firm approach to world disputes.



This has become apparent through frequent calls by Sheikh Zayed to disputant parties all over the world to take recourse to peaceful dialogue and listen to the voice of reason," he noted. Khalifa Nasser Al Suweidi, Chairman of RCS board of directors, said, in a statement to the magazine, that the value of the humanitarian programme, carried out by the RCS in Iraq so far amounted to over Dh 25 million.
