Emiratis and Saudi nationals are in high spirits about the visit of Saudi Crown Prince.

Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Saudi Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence, will make a state visit to the UAE today, it was announced on Tuesday.

Prince Mohammed bin Salman is expected to meet His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to discuss regional issues and issues of mutual interest.

The relations between the UAE and Saudi Arabia have been moving to greater heights over the recent years with cooperation in various fields.

Meanwhile, Emiratis and Saudi nationals are in high spirits about the visit of Saudi Crown Prince and hope that the visit would be of mutual benefit for both the countries.

Khaled Al Shahrani, a 22-year-old Saudi national from Riyadh, expressed his hope that the visit of Prince Mohammed bin Salman will be a new chapter in the strong relationships between the two countries. “It will hopefully bring up more investments and initiatives for the benefit of the two great countries,” he said.

Yousif Alahmed, an Emirati from Sharjah, said the visit will give a boost to the visions and objectives of both the countries.

“The bilateral relations between the UAE and Saudi are a unique model in unified stances, efforts and initiatives that will have a positive impact on the political, economic and social aspects of life of citizens of both the countries.”

Ahmed Saaed Al Kaabi, an Ajman-based Emirati, said the visit will add more power to the already strong UAE-Saudi relations. He said: “This visit reflects the strong bonds between the two brotherly countries, which is deeply-rooted in history, and shall remain unshaken forever.”

Hamza Ahmed Aljohani, a 27-year-old Saudi national, said there is no need to strengthen the relations between the UAE and Saudi Arabia further.

“This is because it is actually one country called KSA-UAE. We share the same, religion, language, culture and destiny,” he said, adding that Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed are always trying their best to make the residents of both the countries happier, irrespective of their nationality.—
