2022-05-13: [Article Link Photo source: Reuters News Screenshot On 13 May, local time, President Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates died. Diplomats and analysts expect Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, to become the new President. Reuters reported on 13 that, according to the Constitution, the current Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Mohammed Al-Dubai, would temporarily assume the presidency following the death of Khalifa until the Supreme Council of the United Arab Emirates met within 30 days to elect a new President. At present, relations between the United Arab Emirates and Washington are becoming more tense, and following the news of the death of Khalifa, United States President Biden issued a statement stating that “Khalifa is a true partner and friend of the United States” and that the United States will continue to strengthen its relations with the United Arab Emirates. In 2020, the United Arab Emirates achieved full normalization of relations with Israel. Israeli Prime Minister Bennett, after the death of Khalifa, stated: “The legacy and great legacy of Khalifa is greatly appreciated in Israel.” In addition, the Iranian Foreign Minister, Abdullah al-Hiyan, sent a message of condolence to the Minister for Foreign Affairs of the United Arab Emirates. In the United Arab Emirates, however, many people have indicated that Al-Khalifa will be remembered for its contribution to the development of the country. According to the United Arab Emirates News Agency, following the death of Khalifa, the Ministry of Presidential Affairs of the United Arab Emirates announced a 40-day national funeral for President Khalifa and a half-flag of mourning throughout the country. Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, born in 1948, is the eldest son of Zayed, the first President of the United Arab Emirates, who was established on 1 February 1969 as the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi; he was Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Federal Armed Forces in May 1976. After the death of President Zayed on 2 November 2004, Al-Khalifa took over as his father, and after a stroke in January 2014, he rarely appeared in public view, with most of the government being managed by Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.
