The Coptic Orthodox Church headed by His Holiness Pope Tawadros II mourns His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates, who passed away today, after spending his life in the service of his country, the Emirates, and was the best successor to the best predecessor.
We share the grief of the brotherly people of the UAE and members of the honorable family at the death of this leader, recalling the historical actions of the Emirates in always supporting Egypt, especially during difficult times.
We will always remember His Highness with an appreciation for his continued support for the presence and work of the Coptic Church in the Emirates, to serve its children residing there.
Sincere condolences to the Emirati brothers, wishing them a continuation of the path of growth and progress, following in the footsteps of the great late.
