President H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan today said that he has great faith that the Almighty God would help the Palestinian people to achieve their aspirations and just demands in establishing their own independent state. Sheikh Zayed made these remarks during a meeting with Suha Arafat, wife of the Palestinian President Yasser Arafat. Present at the meeting was H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, President's wife and Chairwoman of the UAE Women Union.



Suha briefed Sheikh Zayed on the conditions in the occupied Palestinian territories and the suffering of the Palestinian people as a result of the continued repressive actions and aggression by Israel as well as the harsh conditions in which the Palestinian women live. Sheikh Zayed said "the Palestinian people have no other way but to stick to their historical right and to continue their steadfastness until they realise their goals." He also called upon all Arabs to extend support to the Palestinian people and the Palestinian Authority under the leadership of President Yasser Arafat. "Arab solidarity and unity are the only way that can enable us all to achieve a just solution and will return the right to those who suffer injustice," he added. Sheikh Zayed said that peace should be based on justice, fairness and negotiations and should observe the rights of the oppressed. He added that the international community led by the United States should exert maximum effort to put an end to the Israeli practices against the Palestinian people. Sheikh Zayed asked Suha to convey his warm greetings and best wishes to President Arafat.



For her side, Suha Arafat expressed her delight and pride at her meeting with Sheikh Zayed whom she described as the "sage and symbol of the Arabs." " I am delighted and proud of my meeting with His Highness President Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the symbol and sage of the Arabs, who generously shares his wisdom and his vision in shaping up the genuine Arab and Islamic civilisation and unifying Arab ranks," she said. Suha also expressed her gratitude and appreciation for Sheikha Fatima for the warm welcome and hospitality she received during her stay in the UAE. She also thanked Sheikha Fatima for her honest efforts in helping the Palestinian women to overcome their suffering and plight under the tyranny of the Israeli occupation.
