H.H. Sheikh Saud bin Rashid Al Mu'alla, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Umm Al Qaiwain, stressed in a statement to 'Dira'a Al Watan' magazine on the occasion of the 43rd National Day, that the wise leadership of the UAE has reinforced the foundations of the Union laid by the founding leaders led by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and later President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan followed in the same footsteps to promote the stature of the UAE to an advanced position at Arab and international levels, ensuring satisfaction, happiness and prosperity and raising the standard of living of its citizens.

The following is the full statement of H.H. Sheikh Saud to 'Dira'a Al Watan' magazine on the 43rd National Day anniversary: "Under the wise leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE leadership and people celebrate the 43rd National Day, renewing their promise and loyalty to President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa to move forward in the march of welfare and giving, expressing our pride in his wise policies which have put the UAE in the forefront of the Arab world and won it respect and appreciation internationally.

Our wise leadership reinforced the foundations of the Union, laid by the founding leaders led by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and followed in their footsteps by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, to pomote the stature of the UAE to advanced positions at Arab and international levels, ensuring satisfaction, happiness and prosperity and raising the standard of living of its citizens.

Hi Highness Sheikh Khalifa boosted the foundations of the Union by bringing efficiency to policies, plans and programmes with his initiatives contributing in achieving the hopes and aspirations of the UAE people. Sheikh Khalifa also stressed that the human being is the goal of development in all fields.

In confirmation of that, Sheikh Khalifa featured among the most influential leaders and decision-makers of the world in 2014, in accordance with a policy that adopted wisdom in leadership, excellence in performance and achievement, interest in human development, strengthening economy and ensuring the rights of the individual, promotion of security and tranquility, supporting humanitarian programmes inside and outside the State, consolidating Arab and international security and stability, renouncing terrorism and vowing to drain its resources, and providing help and assistance to the peoples of the world in various fields.

On all occasions, our loyal people expressed their firm belief in their wise leadership, and swore to be loyal towards President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. They emphasised the depth of responsibility, of belonging and loyalty to this nation and to maintain its security and stability, preserve its achievements through responding to the leadership's call to perform national service, expressing their readiness to defend the honour of the nation.

Recent years have witnessed remarkable development and creative initiatives approved by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai. The indicators of performance rose in all initiatives launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed, whether through moderation of strategies for all Ministries and federal bodies or through qualified national cadres, who have been able to register excellence in leadership and implementation in accordance with the highest international standards of performance.

In the economic sphere, all Emirates of the State formed diversity in investment and economic planning and performance and strengthened the national industries, making a strong base for a free economy by ensuring diversity in sources of income and the exploitation of capital, creating an ideal environment to invest, boosted by formulation of legislation that supports investment security and facilitates processes while ensuring freedom of transferring capital.

The UAE enjoys infrastructure and development in all services in accordance with international standards, and is linked through networks of communication with countries of the world. Also, it has a very advantageous geographical location that has made it a strong competitor for many countries and an attractive place for investors.

In the context of scientific research and excellence, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, launched the Emirates Space Agency project. The Mars probe will be the first step by the Arab Islamic world in entering the era of space exploration, led by an Emirati team, as part of our ambitions to build local scientific capabilities in the field of outer space exploration, thus emphasising the State's strategies in the field of scientific research and space sciences, and his interest in the creation of scientific cadres in this area and including that as part of the Government's priorities. The Emirati probe to Mars is expected to be launched in 2021 to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the establishment of the UAE.

The UAE's efforts to safeguard the interests of its citizens and meeting their needs have been demonstrated through field visits carried out by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and His Highness General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, following in his footsteps. H.H. Sheikh Mohamed adopted this responsibility according to a scheduled programme to meet the citizens across the country to acquaint himself with their needs and to review what has been achieved through initiatives in all areas, as well as to include these appropriately in the plans and programmes of the State, whether in the general budget of the country or through the initiatives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa.

The visits of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed were appreciated by all citizens, and on all occasions they extended their thanks and appreciation to him for his humanitarian initiatives and visits, thanking him for sharing their social occasions, as well as expressing joy at meeting with him.

The State has boosted the integration of its constitutional powers and performance through the integration between the governments and the Federal National Council (FNC).

During his opening of the fourth ordinary session of the 15th legislative chapter, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, expressed his pride at the FNC's role, whose members are considered part of the national team. Their advice is an essential element in the formulation of government policy, and the support of the wise leadership to the FNC by giving it more powers has contributed to the development of government performance and strengthening legislation, as well as evaluation of services programmes.

Sheikh Mohammed also praised the parliamentary diplomacy carried out by the members of the Federal National Council within the framework of their participation, which is complementary to the political role of the State and supports its political positions, emphasising its rights and supporting its reports in various fields.

The interest of our wise leadership in the empowerment of Emirati women had a significant impact in the political, administrative, social and developmental participation in all areas as the women are an active element in the community.

Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Mother of the UAE, reinforced women's roles through her support for all programmes and initiatives that promote women's status and confirm the leadership's faith and keenness that the women assume leading positions and contribute towards building a modern state, as well as participate in all forums that promote the status of women and faith in their leading role in all fields.

Our wise leadership also issued laws and legislations which enhance the Emirati woman's position and ensure her future, whether in the context of practical participation or through social security, and to meet all her needs and also to preserve her rights.

In conclusion, I would like to extend my deepest congratulations to President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Their Highnesses the Supreme Council Members, Rulers of the Emirates, His Highness General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and to Their Highnesses the Crown Princes and Deputy Rulers, and pray to Allah Almighty to save the leader of our march and may Allah help us to serve our country and its people. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
