Major General Sheikh Saeed bin Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Nahyan, Commander of the UAE Naval Forces, has attended the graduation ceremony of several officers who attended specialized courses at the Naval Forces Institute.
The event was attended by a number of officers from the UAE Armed Forces, UAE national news agency WAM reported.
The ceremony began with a recital from the Holy Quran, followed by a speech from the Deputy Commander of the Naval Forces Institute. He welcomed the ceremony patron and the audience and affirmed that the courses at the institute, despite their varying structure, content and period, have a common goal of raising the capacities of the naval and armed forces.
“We, at the Naval Institute, appreciate the forward thinking for our future development and the considerable efforts being made to develop the capabilities of our naval forces,” he added.
“It is, therefore, our duty to keep pace with current developments, because we believe that we cannot build our military abilities without an advanced infrastructure, especially regarding resources, systems and curriculums. This has enabled us, at the Naval College, to focus on training, education, efficiency and continuous work, while applying advanced techniques to serve our training purposes and objectives, and to achieve the goals of the commander of our naval forces,” he continued.
The Commander of the UAE Naval Forces presented awards and certificates to the graduates at the end of the ceremony.
