“Commemoration Day is a time of appreciation and loyalty, and an opportunity to deepen the sense of belonging to the UAE. We call upon the nation’s youth to learn from the noble values demonstrated by our fallen heroes, and emulate them when performing their duties to the best of their abilities and mastering new skills.

“The UAE of the future that we dream of, plan for, and work for, can only be built with sincere hard work and great sacrifices.

“We salute the soldiers, officers and leaders of our valiant armed forces, and all members of our security services who spare no effort while protecting the achievements of our nation. We also salute our sons and daughters working in all fields of humanitarian work inside and outside the country.

“May God protect the UAE and bestow His mercy and forgiveness on the souls of our martyrs and perpetuate security and safety for our nation.”
