Iconic UAE Landmarks Lit Up Once Again In Solidarity With China

ABU DHABI, March 13 — Iconic UAE landmarks were lit up for the second time in six weeks in solidarity with China’s efforts to contain the new coronavirus, COVID-19, reported Emirates News Agency.

On February 12, the landmark buildings, including Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building in Dubai, and ADNOC Headquarters in Abu Dhabi, were dressed in the colors of the Chinese national flag.

Other key buildings were illuminated with touching messages, reflecting the deep friendship between both nations.

“As long as you have a true friend, he is very close even though he is far away,” reads one message, quoting a famous Chinese poetic verse.

“China will definitely win,” says another slogan on the landmarks.

“Long-distance separates no bosom friends,” notes another message on UAE- China friendship.

“Good friends are good friends no matter how far away they are from each other,” said another scrolling message on the illuminated towers.

The latest gesture by the UAE once again underscores the country’s commitment towards the profound friendship with China, under the leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The UAE’s symbolic act reinforces its humanitarian values and willingness to offer all sorts of support to a friendly country and its people in times of distress.

The UAE has expressed confidence that China will be able to contain and control the spread of the novel coronavirus.

The illuminated buildings with messages of solidarity also reflect the UAE’s commitment to the international community’s efforts to contain the COVID-19.
