President Dalia Grybauskaitė

Message of congratulations to Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates, on national day


Your Highness,

Please accept my congratulations as you celebrate 44 years of the formation of the United Arab Emirates. I send my best wishes for your continued health and success, as well as for the lasting peace and prosperity of your country and its people.

In the recent years, Lithuania and the United Arab Emirates have enjoyed their growing bilateral cooperation. We are building – through joint effort and strong political will – a solid foundation for a more dynamic development of economic and cultural contacts.

In the face of today’s global challenges for our security, the political dialogue we are expanding together on key international issues, our collaboration in international organizations and close relations with the European Union are of crucial importance. I have no doubt that as we consolidate this dialogue in search of mutually beneficial opportunities of cooperation, we will further reinforce the bonds of respect, understanding and partnership between our citizens.

May I again offer my congratulations on your national day. Please accept, Your Highness, the assurances of my highest esteem.

Dalia Grybauskaitė, President of the Republic of Lithuania
