(Abu Dhabi) – His Highness General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, has received a delegation from the UAE Chess Federation, UAECF, headed by Saeed Mohammad Al Miqbali and Saud Mohammed Al Marzooqi, Manager of UAECF.
The delegation included chess players from different age groups who have made significant achievements in the Asian and regional championships, as well as gold, silver and bronze medals winners.
Speaking on the occasion, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed said he was impressed by the great achievements of male and female UAE players so far in various tournaments, and stressed his confidence in their competence and the ability of UAE cadres to attain high stature in many fields, including sports.
