Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, received credentials from several foreign ambassadors to the UAE on Sunday.
Sheikh Mohammed welcomed the ambassadors at Qasr Al Watan in Abu Dhabi where he wished them luck in performing their missions that he said he hoped would benefit both the UAE and their respective countries.
Upon arrival at their posts, new ambassadors typically meet with their host country's foreign minister or head of state to present a letter of credence in a formal ceremony. This marks the beginning of the ambassadorship.
On Sunday, Sheikh Mohammed said the ambassadors could expect the utmost assistance from his government and the authorities to help them with their missions.
