The UAE Armed Forces climb­ing team is back at Ever­est Base Camp af­ter reach­ing the 8,848m-high sum­mit on the world’s tallest moun­tain. The team com­pleted their four-day climb to the top of the world on the morn­ing of May 19 and at 10.40am mem­bers of the team raised the flag of the UAE on the sum­mit of Ever­est in cel­e­bra­tion of the 40th an­niver­sary of the uni­fi­ca­tion of the coun­try’s Armed Forces. An of­fi­cial said: “This team of or­di­nary sol­diers has demon­strated that through ex­cel­lent training and team­work, they were able to unite and achieve some­thing truly ex­tra­or­di­nary. By over­com­ing one of the world’s tough­est chal­lenges, they are an ex­cel­lent rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the ded­i­ca­tion and de­ter­mi­na­tion of our na­tion’s Armed Forces.” UAE news agency WAM said the chal­lenge was se­lected, as it rep­re­sents the sac­ri­fices and hard­ships mem­bers of UAE Armed Forces are pre­pared to en­dure.
