"We have adopted rational and early advanced precautionary measures before other countries around us to stand up to the challenge. The UAE is now secure and stable. We have an advanced infrastructure and we're geared for all challenges whatsoever they are,” he told a number of Sheikhs, ministers and officials at Qasr Al Bahr Majlis.
