Shaikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Foreign Minister, has re-affirmed the keen interest of the leaders and people of UAE in throwing their weight behind Egypt as it plays a vital role in the region in order to restore its leadership in the service of the causes of Arab Nation.

In his statements at the conclusion of his visit to Cairo, Shaikh Abdullah underscored the important stature of Egypt in the Arab region.

“Stability of Egypt is stability for all Arabs,” the foreign minister said re-affirming, once again, the keen interest of the leaders and people of UAE in standing for Egypt in the current stage through all forms of possible support.

He expressed full confidence in the ability of the leaders and people of Egypt to counter all challenges and to advance Egypt to the prestigious stature it deserves.

“UAE’s standing for Egypt reflects its belief that a stable and strong Egypt is a strength, a pillar and a source of balance for all Arabs and regional countries,” said Shaikh Abdullah.

During his visit to Cairo, Shaikh Abdullah met Egypt’s interim president Adly Mansour and General Abdel Fattah El Sisi, First Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Defence and Military Production and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. At the meetings, the two sides discussed the relations between the two countries and ways of cementing them in different spheres.

Shaikh Abdullah also met Dr Ahmed El Tayeb, Grand Imam of Egypt’s Al Azhar. In his remarks at the meeting, Shaikh Abdullah emphasised that Al Azhar will always be Islam’s strong fort and immune beacon for promoting peace, love and moderation, which are among the essential principles of Islam, as it used to be in the past centuries.
