Since 1971, the leadership and people of the United Arab Emirates have not been far from the horizons of the 21st century. The late founder, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, “may God rest his soul”, made since taking over the reins of power about half a century ago his first concern is the relentless pursuit of establishing a modern state for it. A rich past, a prosperous present and a promising future.
Since then, a year has passed and another has come until the Emirati heritage has become a 50-year-old national treasure, during which the leaders of this great and benevolent nation have given most of their efforts to development, science, knowledge, progress and prosperity, and they have achieved their motto that the UAE is at the forefront of nations. And that march initiated by Sheikh Zayed, may God have mercy on him, was capable of placing the UAE in the ranks of developed countries. It is a country that has gone through all stages of renewal and modernization in all sciences and technologies to include various economic, social, cultural and sports fields. The process of construction and development was completed by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the State, “may God protect him”, which led to the achievement of progress and prosperity for the country and the citizen.

During those five decades, the infrastructure was developed and work was done to diversify sources of income so as not to rely on oil as a main source of national income in order to achieve security, stability and a decent life for the Emirati citizen wherever he is and everywhere in the country.
The UAE is proud of the largest and largest projects implemented by humans in the modern era along with the green projects that are planning for the emirates of the future, such as Masdar City, the Sustainable City in Dubai and the Sustainable City of Sharjah. These projects are truly the pride of every Emirati and Arab. The modern Emirates will fascinate everyone who comes to it, from international airports to accommodation hotels, advanced road networks that connect cities, and various means of transportation, such as metro and rapid water transport.

And if any brother or friend talks about the UAE, the first thing he remembers is its national, regional and international positions. We always find the UAE at the forefront of Arab countries that adopt a balanced and neutral foreign policy, and that is why it is a permanent address for tolerance and consultation. It is still before us that it hosted more than one meeting that included different religions to become a global capital of tolerance, in which the civilizations of the East and the West meet to promote peace and rapprochement between peoples, and this is what made it a destination for all from different countries of the world, regardless of their colour, race or religion.
The UAE does not neglect its regional and national role in light of this openness and rapprochement with the peoples of the world, as it adopts a special vision for resolving chronic crises, and therefore spared no effort except and did it in order to overcome obstacles and bridge the gap between different positions. Over the decades, the UAE has raised slogans and followed policies that do not change them despite the change of times. Its principles are firm and well-established based on peace, love, secure coexistence and extending a hand of friendship to all. This wise policy made it one of the few countries in the world that enjoys stability and security despite the surrounding international circumstances.
He writes to the wise leadership of the Emirates that its conscious vision and reading of what is happening is based on creating and maintaining the best system for peace and security at the regional and international levels, because that has become one of the most important goals of nations and peoples. Therefore, it has been and is still working seriously in order to achieve international peace and security. The UAE takes the promotion of dialogue and understanding as an important heading in its vision, which ultimately leads to the achievement of security and stability for all peoples, which is directed by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the State, “may God protect him” and stressed by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy The President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, “may God protect him”, is confirmed by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, in various meetings and meetings with Arab and international leaders.
