Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Bangladesh Saed Mohammed Al Mheiri on Sunday said Bangladesh and the UAE share close people-to-people bond, similar national realities, and complementary development goals.

He said the relationship between the two countries is based on the principles of cooperation and mutual respect which has reached the level of "strategic partnership" between the two countries and people in recent years.

The UAE Ambassador was addressing a reception at his home marking the 47th UAE National Day. Law Minister Anisul Huq was present as the chief guest.

Politicians, diplomats stationed in Dhaka, businesspeople, and journalists attended it.

Mheiri said the UAE adopted an active approach to diplomacy with a marked openness to across the world establishing an extensive network of relations with various countries around the world.

The Ambassador noted that the UAE is actively involved in the fight against extremism and terrorism, and a key element in the country's determined efforts to ensure its national security and enhance international security.

The UAE has accomplished important achievements in this regard, both through military participation in Islamic and international alliances and the enactment of local laws to fight against terrorism and its causes.
