Gulf Today Report
It was an event to remember, with a very special reason. The inauguration of the July 3 Naval Base in Egypt featured two towering leaders: His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, apart from a host of dignitaries. But among the attendees were two very young and very special guests: grandsons of Sheikh Mohamed.
The two children, Tahnoun Bin Mohamed Bin Tahnoun Al Nahyan and Zayed Bin Mohamed Bin Tahnoun Al Nahyan, were the delight of the people present there, including the paparazzi.
The two kids were seen on board an Egyptian frigate, accompanied by the two leaders.
At one stage, Mohamed Bin Zayed lifted his grandson so he could have a better view of the base.
In a heartwarming gesture, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi was seen explaining to his youngest grandson the importance of the base and what had been achieved there.
President Sisi directed the scribes to click photographs of the kids in front of planes and ships, saying, “They photographed the boys with the planes, this is a beautiful history for them.”
Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan has made a phone call with President Abdel Fattah El Sisi of the Arab Republic of Egypt, in which he welcomed the ceasefire in Gaza.
At the beginning of the meeting, Sheikh Mohamed and the Egyptian president exchanged Ramadan greetings, and prayed to Allah Almighty to bless the people of the two countries and the rest of the Arab and Islamic world, and humanity at large, with more peace and prosperity.
During the visit, the Egyptian President will discuss with His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan the strong relations between the two brotherly countries and the strategic bilateral cooperation and mechanisms to further develop them in various fields.
Since the conflict began on Friday, 31 Palestinians — including six children — have been killed, while 275 people have been wounded, said health authorities.
Speaking during a visit to Bangladesh, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said his country's actions were "legitimate, reasonable, in accordance with the law," and aimed at protecting China's "sacred sovereignty."
The new government includes 75 members, including a deputy prime minister, 25 ministers and their deputies, in addition to 24 ministers of state.
The ministry said that the value of the monthly fuel allowance is linked to the social status of each family, which is variable according to the current price of fuel. It can be obtained using the Emirates ID card at any of ADNOC Distribution stations across the UAE, throughout the month.
