His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, has expressed his distress on learning about the Philippines after the eruption of the Taal volcano.
The threat of the Taal volcano unleashing a potentially catastrophic eruption remains high, authorities warned, saying it was showing dangerous signs despite a "lull" in spewing ash.
Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed said, “Our hearts go out to the people of Philippines after the eruption of the Taal volcano.
“We pray that these tough times are over with the least losses. The UAE stands in solidarity with the Philippines in these difficult times and is ready to provide all support and assistance.”
