UAE needs to further secure its land and maritime borders

posted on 19/06/2005: 662 views



The UAE needs to strengthen its maritime and land borders to deal with any emergency situation, political diplomats have said. Speaking to Gulf News yesterday on the sidelines of a meeting between a parliamentary political committee from NATO and UAE officials, German parliamentarian Helmut Rauber said: "The UAE is an extremely stable country, both politically and economically. So far there have been no problems, but in future the country can be prepared for any situation.”



He said that NATO countries were reaching out to the UAE to form partnerships and alliances. The initiative began at the Istanbul Summit in June 2004. The summit aimed to ensure global and regional security by offering countries of the broader Middle East region "practical bilateral security cooperation with NATO”.



Rauber said a major concern addressed during Nato's meetings with government officials was securing the borders of the UAE. "There is a need to secure the borders of the UAE and we are here to give assistance to help secure land and maritime borders. He said they could offer assistance through modern surveillance mechanisms, aircraft and training. "We have excellent surveillance systems and aircraft that can make the borders of the UAE even more secure.”



Austrian Parliamentarian, Walter Murauer said: "Stability in this region means stability to NATO, the European Union [EU] and all countries. "We want to support and stabilise the situation in this region. We want to cooperate to fight terrorism, weapons of mass destruction and other crimes,” he said. He said the UAE had relied primarily on the United States and it was time this cooperation extended to NATO and EU countries. "This cooperation is both in the UAE's interest and our interest. We can exchange information and benefit from each other,” he said. (The Gulf News)
