(Washington DC) – United Arab Emirates Ambassador to the United States Yousef Al Otaiba hosted a reception honoring the country’s 43rd National Day. The event, held at the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in Washington, DC, celebrated the UAE’s continued growth and progress and highlighted the strong bilateral relationship with the United States.
During the National Day event, Ambassador Al Otaiba congratulated the UAE’s leadership and unveiled a new public diplomacy program, “United for a Better Future,” which recognizes the close friendship between the UAE and US. The Ambassador unveiled the new campaign with a short film that showcases both countries’ common vision for a better future.
“For sure, the UAE and the United States are different countries with different histories, cultures and political systems. But at the same time, we also recognize that we have more in common today than ever before. Today, Emiratis and Americans are united by shared interests and common values. (The UAE) may be small in size, but we are a big partner with America – in security, in prosperity and in outlook,” said Ambassador Yousef Al Otaiba.
The Embassy’s National Day event highlighted several examples of the close security, economic, and socio-cultural cooperation between the UAE and US, including: joint security cooperation across six military coalition actions, from the First Gulf War to Kosovo, Afghanistan, to the current operation against ISIL; strong economic partnerships, such as the close commercial aviation relationship that creates hundreds of thousands of jobs across the US; and, dynamic relationships that promote increased connections across communities, such as the New York University Abu Dhabi, the UAE Embassy’s community soccer programs, and the Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, which is set to open in 2015.
