UAE to display its military might at Fujairah parade
fujairah — The UAE will display its military might during the fourth edition of the ‘Union Fortress 4’ show that will take place on the Fujairah Corniche on February 2. A military show at the event will include different formations and units of the armed forces, in order to highlight the harmony among them.
The show will also feature field operations, such as live raids, showcasing the Armed Forces’ combat capabilities while performing internal security operations.
The UAE Armed Forces are continuing preparations for the show that is aimed to demonstrate the remarkable military power of the country. “The show will display the UAE’s ability to carry out missions with outstanding agility and high efficiency, and to perform a wide range of military operations to defend the homeland and protect its security, in close cooperation with other security services,” said organisers.
The organisation of the military event aligns with the vision of the leadership to show the important role played by the brave armed forces in defending the country’s borders and protecting the people and their interests from foreign and internal threats, in cooperation with other ministries and government institutions.
The organising committee of the military show confirmed that the UAE Armed Forces’ “tremendous achievements qualified them to earn the respect and admiration of the whole world”. “These forces have become the shield and fortress of the UAE, and the constant protector against conspirators and ill-wishers.”
“In the Year of Zayed, we recall the vision of the late founding father Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan to build a modern national army, which he himself followedup, until our national industries have ultimately been able to meet aspects of our military demands. His efforts also manifested in the preparation of national cadres and military leaders, making our forces a strong model of efficiency and readiness, as well as being a great example of the true sense of belonging to the homeland and loyalty to the leadership.”
The organising committee of Union Fortress had invited the public to share with the members of the Armed Forces the feelings of pride, spirit of union, and glorification of their valiant army. The committee also pointed out that the UAE Armed Forces would not have reached this point without the support of the wise leadership and the societal framework. “These elements are best shown in the cohesion of the UAE community, both citizens and residents,” the committee said. —
