American Independence Day Celebration - July 2017

Thank you for attending our American Independence Day celebration, our largest community event of the year. We celebrated with guests from the U.S., U.A.E. and many other countries. In his remarks, H.E. Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan said, “I am deeply honored to be celebrating with you tonight. We in the United Arab Emirates have always admired your principles and your success. Our country is fortunate in being able to call the United States of America a friend. Our political, commercial, and educational linkages are deeply rooted in confidence and trust and provide a strong and stable foundation for our friendly relations, now and in the future.” He added “The U.A.E. and every other nation that has studied the U.S. Declaration of Independence and the history of the United States recognize the necessary connection between freedom and happiness. The friendship between the U.S. and the U.A.E. will surely endure as we each in our own way reinforce the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
