UAE to dis­play its mil­i­tary might at Fu­jairah pa­rade

Khaleej Times - - NATION -

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. —
