Sheikh Mohammed launched a nation-wide campaign, urging people to thank Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has paid rich tributes to His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.

The Dubai Media Office posted a video on its Twitter account, with Sheikh Mohammed saying: "A prime model of our continuation of Zayed's legacy in tolerance, entrenching the UAE as a global inspiration in humanity, is @MohamedBinZayed."

This came as the two leaders honoured the teams and heroes working within fields of tolerance during the UAE Government Annual Meetings.

The video shows Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed meeting Pope Francis; interacting with world leaders; receiving and talking to Emiratis and expatriates; sharing a light moment with children, etc.

The two leaders are known to be quite close and often meet to discuss issues relating to the country and its residents. Last year, Sheikh Mohammed had launched a nation-wide campaign, urging people to thank Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed "with a meaningful word, or an inspiring picture, or a good act".

When Sheikh Mohammed completed 50 years of serving the nation, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed had penned a heartfelt letter, asking residents to give a word of thanks to the Dubai Ruler, "who enriched the country with his thoughts, visions, innovations and his exceptional initiatives".
