US official Sean Murphy praises UAE for outstanding organisation of IDEX 2021
Sean Murphy, Chargé d’Affaires at the United States Embassy in Abu Dhabi, has affirmed that the United Arab Emirates and the United States of America enjoy a decades-old strategic partnership.
“We are grateful to the government of the UAE for hosting this global event. We thank the UAE for the distinguished organisation that we see today,” he added.
The US official stated, “The pioneering organisational efforts that we see today in terms of applying all precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of the participants made it extremely safe for everyone to attend this special event.”
He explained that IDEX is the only exhibition of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa region, which constitutes an ideal opportunity for the US to strengthen its relations with many friendly countries.
Murphy also congratulated the UAE on the remarkable achievement it had recently made with the successful arrival of the Hope Probe into its orbit around Mars. He praised the American-Emirati partnership in the space sector, such as NASA, the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre, and the UAE Space Agency.
