Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, has received Charles Bolden, Administrator of the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and members of the delegation accompanying him.

The pair spoke about scientific issues and efforts to harness space technology for peaceful and non-politicised purposes to serve all humanity.

Sheikh Mohammed welcomed all forms of constructive cooperation between the UAE Space Agency, the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre and other relevant institutions in the UAE, on the one hand, and NASA on the other, to serve science, scientists, common interests and all humanity.

He noted that these institutions signed agreements with NASA. These include an agreement to train UAE nationals at NASA and specialised universities, exchange of expertise and knowledge and encourage Emirati scientists' innovation and creativity to enhance the UAE's stature at the forefront of countries involved in space exploration for purely scientific purposes.

Sheikh Mohammed also highlighted the positive role that private national companies should play in training and supporting the Emirati youth to contribute towards enhancing the UAE's global stature.

The meeting was attended by H.H. Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Technology and Media Free Zone Authority; Reem bint Ibrahim Al Hashimy, Minister of State for International Cooperation; Hamad Obaid Al Mansouri, Chairman of Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre; Khalifa Sulaiman, Director-General of Dubai Protocol and Hospitality; Jasim Mohammed Al Zaabi, member of the board of the UAE Space Agency; Barbara A.
