The Austrian Chancellor stated that this visit is an important phase in strengthening and consolidating ties between the two countries

The Federal Chancellor of Austria, Sebastian Kurz, has welcomed the visit of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, saying that the “visit of the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince is a source of great pleasure and honour for us”.

The Austrian Chancellor stated that this visit is an important phase in strengthening and consolidating ties between the two countries, which witnessed great developments in recent years.

In an exclusive interview with the Emirates News Agency (WAM), Chancellor Kurz expressed his admiration and appreciation for the UAE’s development in all sectors, which he witnessed during his two official visits to the UAE.

“The UAE is one of our most important partners in the Arab region,” he stressed, adding that “it is Austria’s most important economic partner in the Arab World,” he said.

He pointed out that the Austrian direct investments in the UAE exceeded €7 billion, noting that, “boosting the relations between Austria and the UAE to a strategic partnership is a logical thing that will bring benefits to both countries”.
