Speaking at the ceremony, Sheikh Abdullah affirmed that the UAE, led by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, spared no effort to empower its citizens and provide them with opportunities to unleash their energies in order to significantly contribute to building the future of their country.

Sheikh Abdullah emphasised the ministry's commitment to absorb competent citizens who are capable of serving and representing their country honourably inside and outside the country.

HH urged the new diplomats to work diligently and shoulder their responsibility properly taking into consideration the status of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation as a mirror image of the UAE abroad.

HH wished the new diplomats good luck in delivering the vision and serving the goals and principles of the UAE's diplomacy by serving its citizen in the country and representing his interests overseas.

Highlighting the magnitude of responsibility placed on the new diplomats, HH said he was confident of their abilities to push the nation's development process forward and uphold values, principles and approaches of the UAE's diplomacy and cope with the rapid regional and international transformations. He was also confident that they would perform their duty with complete confidence and ability to achieve and innovate in a way that delivers objectives of the UAE foreign policy and diplomatic work.

Dr. Sultan bin Ahmad Sultan Al Jaber, Minister of State; Mohammed Mir Al Raisi, Under-Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation; Dr. Abdul Rahim Al Awadi, Assistant Foreign Minister for Legal Affairs; Ahmed Abdul Rahman Al Jarman, Assistant Foreign Minister Political Affairs, and a number of senior officials and heads of departments at the ministry, attended the ceremony.

On the side-lines of the event, Sheikh Abdullah honoured a group of employees who won the competition for an innovative platform, an initiative launched by HH this year under the theme ''Your health is our priority'' to encourage employees to present creative ideas and implement them as a part of the efforts to promote and serve the diplomatic corps in aspects of health.

A jury received more than 119 entrants and selected the three best innovative ideas.
