Germany: Polite disagreement on anniversary visit with UAE
Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and UAE Armed Forces deputy supreme commander Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan (MBZ) visited Germany on 11 June for a two-day visit, three years after he was last in Berlin. MBZ met President Frank-Walter Steinmeier at Schloss Bellevue on the day of his arrival and Chancellor Angela Merkel the following day. It is 15 years since the two countries signed a strategic partnership agreement, since when the value of bilateral trade has risen from $3bn to $14bn.
