"The world is witnessing an unprecedented crisis due to the coronavirus pandemic, which clearly highlights the importance of the correct foreign policy and its results.

"We are waiting to find a vaccine to protect people from the coronavirus, so that life can return to normal everywhere. During this fierce battle against the virus, our true heroes, scientists and engineers, are working hard to protect public health, treat patients and provide us with protection and testing equipment. Therefore, science must be prioritised in our national policies," he added.

Sheikh Mohammed said, "We want to achieve a qualitative leap in infrastructure, energy and transport fields as part of a vision that combines inclusiveness and integration and takes into account balance and sustainability and enhances our competitiveness regionally and globally."
