Abu Dhabi (WAM)
His Excellency the President of the Maldives Ibrahim Mohammed Salih has congratulated Sheikh Mohammed bin Saeed Al Nahyan on his election as President of the United Arab Emirates. He said Sheikh Mohammed bin Saeed Al Nahyan was a beacon of hope for growth with a focus on leadership and Islamic values.
He added, “I have met him five times and I wish him success in his new leadership role and I look forward to working closely with his superior to expand our current relationship in the years to come.”
Statements by the President of the Maldives, who paid an official visit to the United Arab Emirates to mourn the death of the late Sheikh Khalifa bin Saeed Al Nahyan, may God bless him. May God have mercy on him, thinking of his support for the Maldives during difficult times like the Indian Ocean tsunami and the plague.
He noted the improved state of relations between the Maldives and the United Arab Emirates with the blessings of the late Sheikh Khalifa, especially the opening of the Maldives Embassy in Abu Dhabi in 2012 and the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in the Maldives in 2019. Emirati Investments in the Maldives saw a significant increase during that period, including an agreement to promote and protect mutual investment, to upgrade the Velana International Airport, the main airport in the Maldives, with the support of the United Arab Emirates, and to cooperate in the renewable sector.
