Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, New President of the United Arab Emirates

Suara.com – The following is the action of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, the new president of the United Arab Emirates.

Sheikh Mohammed, known as MbZ, was elected president by the grand federal council on Saturday (14/5).

The council is made up of the leaders of the seven emirates in the UAE federation.

The de facto leader of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan was elected president of the Gulf Arab state, one day after his half-brother, President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed, died.

MbZ (61 years old) has for many years held power behind the scenes.

He also led the realignment of the Middle East, which created a new anti-Iranian axis with Israel.

The position as president strengthens Sheikh Mohammed’s position as the ruler of the oil-producing countries in the OPEC membership and as a key player in the region.

He was elected president at a time when long-standing relations between the UAE and the United States have deteriorated over the US’s perceived refusal to engage with security concerns felt by its Gulf allies.

Sheikh Mohammed has also emerged as president at a time when Western countries are trying to garner support from the region to help isolate Russia over the Ukraine conflict.
