Sharjah: His Highness Dr Shaikh Sultan Bin Mohammad Al Qasimi, Member of Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, has asked the public not to worry about earthquakes.

The Arabian Peninsula is not a seismically active area and it is only natural to feel quake tremors when earthquakes hit neighbouring regions, he said while taking part in a programme broadcasted by Sharjah TV and Radio.
