Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed visited the Pha That Luang historic temple on Thursday, one of the most important national monuments in Laos.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation toured the monument and viewed the architecture of the building. He applauded the cultural movement in Laos and the historic landmarks, which stand as a living proof of the country's deep-rooted civilisation, according to WAM, the UAE state news agency.

He said the UAE respects nations' arts, artefacts and cultures that highlight the concept of tolerance and peaceful co-existence among different cultures and faiths.

"The UAE is founded on such principles, upheld by its founder, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan," Sheikh Abdullah said.

He was accompanied during the visit by Khalid Al Qahtani, UAE's non-resident ambassador to Laos.
