The Governments of the United Arab Emirates and of the United Kingdom signed two memoranda of understanding on the creation of a Dialogue of Values and Qualification of Frameworks. The two memoranda were signed as part of the State Visit of the President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan to the United Kingdom. H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE Foreign Minister, signed on behalf of the UAE, while the British Foreign Secretary, William Hague, signed on behalf of the United Kingdom.
The Dialogue of Values will be supervised by the UAE-UK Taskforce, jointly chaired by H.E. Dr Anwar Mohammed Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, and Alistair Burt, British Parliamentary Under Secretary for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs. The first meeting is scheduled to be held this month, with follow-up meetings at six-monthly intervals. The discussions will strengthen cultural and political understanding between the UAE and the UK, as well as exploring the developments in the Middle East and North Africa.
Under the terms of the memorandum on qualifications, the two sides will prepare a list on the quality institutions in both countries to promote understanding and achieve partnership and ensure quality. They will also exchange information about the qualifications endorsed by the higher education institutions in both countries. The two sides will work to set content of the education programmes. They will inform each other about symposia, training sessions and mutual visits in both countries.
