A report compiled by the Armed Forces Military Media Directorate said that the 6th of May 1976 when the late Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan issued the resolution of Unification of armed forces was a landmark day in the UAE history.

According to the report, the Armed Forces have made remarkable achievements in terms of possessing modern defence and military technology and developing its human resources.

''Under the sound instructions of Shaikh Zayed, the Armed Forces General Command has made qualitative and quantitative leap in terms of acquiring latest armaments and training of its personnel,'' it said.

Outside the country, the UAE Armed Forces have been among the first donors to offer assistance in the reconstruction of Iraq and assisting its people with relief. The Emirates Group for Iraq's Reconstruction has set up and maintained educational, health and religious facilities.
