He said in a statement distributed by the Cairo-based pan Arab organisation on Monday on the occasion of the UAE launch of the "Hope Probe" that this project is also a revival of an Arab history full of achievements in various sciences.
He added that the "Hope Probe" reflects the identity of the country and the culture of its people in challenging the impossible and overcoming it, persevering in development, enhancing knowledge and exploring new horizons that could change the course of history.
Aboul Gheit pointed out that this achievement is an Emirati-Arab contribution to shaping and making a promising future for humanity, and a message to future generations that nothing is impossible, and it gives the owners the resolve to overcome barriers and challenges and the constant aspiration to discover more.
"This achievement is a natural result of the UAE’s approach to encouraging innovation and appreciating planning and far-sighted vision," he added.
"We are days away from the UAE Hope probe's highly-anticipated launch to Mars that will inspire the young generation to make the impossible, possible," said Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid while addressing the 21-member Emirati Hope Probe team.
"Being the first Arab state to embark on Mars mission demonstrates the UAE’s significant progress in space technology. On behalf of the Chinese Government, I would like to warmly congratulate the UAE on the successful launch of the Hope Mars Orbiter, and wish the Hope Mars Mission a complete success," said Ni Jian, the Chinese Ambassador to the UAE.
