H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, has extended his warmest congratulations to President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and to Their Highnesses the Members of the Supreme Council and Rulers of the Emirates and the U.A.E people, on the occasion of the 42th National Day of the UAE Union.

Sheikh Sultan stated that "Anyone who pursues the history of the Union of the United Arab Emirates, which was founded more than four decades ago, should feel the endeavours and efforts made by the Founders of the Union in their struggle for this entity, derived from all the difficulties they faced and the obstacles encountered in their way, energies and greater resolve to continue working for the principle that they believed in, which is the integration and cooperation among them through a strong union that ensures security and stability for its people and push them for progress to emulate major countries in its achievements.

'The United Arab Emirates, thanks to God and thanks to the efforts of its loyal sons, has provided the opportunity to build a solid Union based on strong and firm foundations, laid down by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan,' Sheikh Sultan said in a statement to 'Dira'a Al Watan' magazine on the occasion of the UAE's 42nd National Day anniversary.

The 2nd day of December, he added, is really a historical day, where the efforts of the honest and loyal, the Rulers of the Emirates and the leader of the march, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, crowned with the establishment of the Union of our dear nation, and along the march of this Union all our heart, government and people, thanks to God and to ourselves, still full of faith in the principle of unity and working for it.

Sheikh Sultan continued, "We all as people of the UAE, men and women, old and young, should make this anniversary as an opportunity to encourage all to achieve their hopes and our hope, that the new generation will be able to carry the responsibility with loyalty and awareness of what the Union has achieved to our country, and with all strength to maintain its achievements.

'We prayed God that this Union will be the core of our strength, way and our guide to preserve its rules in this difficult time, which is being witnessed a lot of changes and tragedies that requires from everyone to take lessons and maintain this nation and its soil and unity,' he concluded. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
