"The promotions represent a great incentive for all teams to continue their hard work on consolidating the pillars of security, providing the highest levels of safety and preserving the gains achieved at the country level," Tamim said.

He underscored that the high position achieved by the UAE under the leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, requires exerting more effort and continuing to invest in and empowering the national cadres, while applying the highest standards that ensure the highest levels of security and safety for all community members.
