It is an honor for me to extend my warmest congratulations to the brotherly people and government of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan on its 75th Independence anniversary. I feel honored and very happy to share the joys of our brothers.
We in the United Arab Emirates share the joys of the brotherly nation as the two countries are celebrating the golden jubilee of its deep-rooted affinity of historical and cultural bounds, and both nations share the respect and pride in the legendary of our leaders, the Late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan and Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
UAE and Pakistan enjoy a unique friendship that withstood various tests and the scope of our cooperation kept expanding with the passage of time and now covers various fields, as the leadership of both countries showed their keen desire to give an impetus to the bilateral relations at all Political, Economic and Social levels and extend these relations to broader horizons.
I do believe that Pakistan, my second home, with its rich cultural history, geographical diversity and great economic potential, will continue its journey towards peace, social and economic development and I am confident that under the joint efforts of the leaderships of both countries, the relations will continue to keep pace with the of time.
