Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan said the UAE “strongly and resolutely stands with the brotherly Saudi kingdom while confronting all challenges that target its security and the region’s security and stability.”

He also said that the UAE wholeheartedly stands with Saudi Arabia through easy and difficult times and emphasized that the latter’s security is part and parcel of the UAE’s security.

He added that the hand of evil will not defeat the brothers’ determination in Saudi Arabia, noting that Saudi King Salman’s decisiveness can thwart all forms of aggression and conspiracies against the kingdom and the region.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed also condemned the Houthis and their allies for firing a ballistic missile towards Riyadh, and which Saudi air defense forces intercepted and successfully destroyed without causing any injuries.
