UAQ Ruler gives National Day message

posted on 02/12/2009: 2154 views

UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Umm Al Qaiwain HH Sheikh Saud Bin Rashid Al Mualla said that the remarkable achievements made by UAE have secured the country an exalted position among the world countries.

In a message given across the Dira Al Watan (Nation Shield) Magazine on the occasion of the 38th National Day, the ruler said that the leadership of HH President Sheikh Khalifa has instilled peace and confidence in the hearts of people to continue the march heralded by late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

The following is the full text of the message:.

It is the fifth year after the departing of the founder of our young nation, our union and our pioneering renaissance late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Even though his physical presence is not with us today, his sacred soul is and will remain among us, making us feel that he is among us always whenever we see the achievements of our nation.

The leadership of our march was then entrusted to HH Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The blessed leader instilled peace and confidence in the hearts of people to continue the march. He eliminated their distress caused by the departing of the founder leader. Thus the first years after his accession elapsed without slowing down our march or obstructing the radiance of the torch. Everyone became confident of the continuity of the march towards its goal.

History will record that the first term after accession of His Highness the President is distinguished with new achievements. Among these achievements is the enhancement of the role of the Federal National Council through the election of half of its members. Among these achievements is also the equality of men and women in their political rights, which gave them the rights of nomination and election.

He took command of the ship of our union with efficiency overcoming obstacles and continuing the achievements and fulfilling our aspirations in all areas. His leadership was also distinguished by the initiative to face the global financial crisis as he took the preventive measures to combat it and then made national initiatives to ward off its effects. His term also is characterised by the heralding of the era of peaceful use of nuclear energy, as he set up the Federal Authority of Nuclear Regulation, an authority that will monitor the atomic sector in UAE and ensure that it is used for civilian purposes as well us to guarantee safety and security. The country also made the first steps towards the establishment of the first nuclear plant for energy production. It is expected that its construction will be completed within a few years. Fulfilling the ambitions of the present generation the country also turned towards renewable energy, which will produce all types of sustainable energy including solar energy and the like. This is in anticipation of the future dependence on these energy sources to avoid global warming and its effects on our planet and the mankind. The country also made achievements in the areas of utilities, development of IT sector to encompass several fields and the establishment of national identity. These are just few among the large number of achievements in the first tenure of HH the President.

I would like to mention a few of them, among which are the support given to humanitarian works. This has earned for our country a distinguished position among Arab, Islamic, Asian and African as well as other world countries.

Therefore it is not surprising if he won the confidence and trust of the Supreme Council which elected him as president to continue to lead the march in the second term.

I pray to God Almighty to help and protect our beloved country and grant health and wellness to Their Highnesses the president, vice president and supreme council members and rulers of emirates and to help them to continue their efforts for the success and development of our country. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
