The UAE, with its wise leadership and people from diverse cultural backgrounds, is a combination of tolerance, harmony, respect and acceptance of the other. The idea of tolerance is rooted in the authentic UAE society, which derives from the medium of the true Islamic religion, the noble Arab customs and traditions, and the wisdom and heritage of Zayed. We are keen to work towards strengthening these values and creating frameworks that support its continuity under the wise leadership that believes in building human and human.
