 Promoting the "UAE as symbol of tolerance and peace," Shaikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, chairman of the Supreme Committee of the 45th National Day and Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development, will lead diplomatic officials from 41 countries in a 'Walkathon of Nations' this afternoon at City Walk Dubai.
The walkathon will be held in all seven emirates of the UAE at different dates and will conclude in Abu Dhabi on December 5. More than 1,200 people are expected to participate at the event in Dubai, where cultural bands from India, Algeria, Belgium, Austria, Malta, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Sri Lanka, Greece, Italy, Turkey, South Korea and Ghana are expected to perform.
"The celebration of the UAE's 45th National Day reflects the noble emotions of every one living in this beloved country," Al Nahyan said. "It also expresses their pride in the UAE, its leadership and its people and its great achievements in various fields."
"This is a sincere expression of (our) pride and commitment to the values and principles upon which the Union is founded reflecting a civilised, unique and developed model of tolerance and coexistence," Al Nahyan added.
