Our leadership attaches great importance to empowering Emiratis, who do not hesitate to commit their lives to continue the path of development and prosperity, ensuring the UAE flag remains fluttering high with pride and duty. On this day, we pay tribute to our armed forces, the fortress of the UAE, who bring honour to our country through their unwavering loyalty. We pray to Allah Almighty to grant peace to the souls of the martyrs and solace to their families, and to continue to bless the UAE with peace and stability, so that the UAE remains the land that provides stability, security, and well-being to its people,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.
