DUBAI: Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum has stated that the sacrifices and accomplishments of the UAE Armed Forces are a source of pride for every Emirati.

Sheikh Mohammed made the remarks during his visit to an exhibition titled “Protectors of the Nation: Sacrifice and Giving,” held at the Etihad Museum in Dubai.

“Since their creation, our Armed Forces have kept pace with global developments in training and preparation of personnel, who represent the main asset of any defence system.

The development process also included the acquisition of the latest weapons to ensure our Armed Forces always hold an edge in the field.

“It is our duty to teach the current generation about the glorious history of our Armed Forces, not only to instil patriotism in them but also to make them aware of the history of the nation and the sacrifices made to safeguard its progress,” Sheikh Mohammed added.
