"Today we stand with Sheikh Mohamed, so that the UAE, as usual, remains the gateway to security and safety, relying on its outstanding global standing, and keenness to strengthen international relations, to ensure the achievement of economic and societal requirements, in a manner that preserves human dignity and freedoms, and spreads peace and stability for all nations," he said.
