(Abu Dhabi) – President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan has stressed that the decision to unify the UAE’s Armed Forces thirty-nine years ago was a wise, visionary step taken by the founding fathers of the state, thanks to their strategic perspectives and insights regarding the challenges of the future.
His Highness told the “Nation Shield” journal on the 39th anniversary of the Unification of the Armed Forces that the security, stability and peace the country enjoys today, as well as the unity of our land and people and Armed Forces, are the result of the founding fathers’ insight.
Following is the full text of his remarks: My sons and daughters, members of our Armed Forces, Commanders, Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers and other personnel, Al Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatu – “Peace Be upon You”
On the 39th anniversary of the Unification of our Armed Forces, I extend my greetings and thanks to you for the efforts you have made, and are still making, to be always fully ready to preserve the numerous achievements of the Union, to protect the security and stability of your community and to defend your dear nation with dedication, sincerity and loyalty.
