Peace and tolerance are at the heart of policymaking in the UAE
The UAE-Israel Peace Accord is a great leap forward and I congratulate the leadership for this.
The UAE has been my home for almost 25 years and I carry fond memories of building a family here in a peaceful environment. I am happy to see my second home country taking the leadership mantle of a new world order, a new order of peace. I am thrilled to see this small country of just over 10 million people paving the path to peace, tolerance and a new world order. Once again, the leadership is proving they do what they say - practice tolerance. Once again the UAE is proving nothing is impossible.
By hosting the visit of Pope Francis, interfaith conference, building a mosque, a church, and a synagogue in one compound, the UAE is setting the stage for a peaceful future.
With the recent launch of the Hope Mission, the emirates has raised the expectations. I doubt if there is any country in the world that is comparable to the UAE. It is a great country that creates opportunities and pushes its people to dream big and achieve it all. Yes, a country with two million citizens is home to another eight million from over 200 countries.
I hope other countries will join hands with the UAE to create a better place for our future generations.
Thank you, Rulers. I salute you.
