A message from The Queen following the death of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan

Published

I am saddened to hear of the death of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Abu Dhabi.

Your distinguished brother devoted his life to serving the people of the United Arab Emirates and his relationship with its allies and friends.

He will be long remembered by all who work for regional stability, understanding between nations and between faiths, and for the conservation cause.

I offer Your Highness my sincere condolences and I extend my sympathy to the people of the United Arab Emirates.
