London:  President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan concluded his two-day state visit to the United Kingdom this afternoon with a visit to Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, the heir to the British throne, at his residence, Clarence House.

Prince Charles welcomed Sheikh Khalifa and his accompanying delegation, praising the deep and historic relations between the UAE and Britain. He said that these are supported by the leaderships of both countries.

He added that the President's state visit represented an important stage in the history of the relationship.

During their cordial talks, the two exchanged views on the relationship and on how it could be strengthened.

Prince Charles then showed Sheikh Khalifa special displays of the work of the Prince's School for Traditional Arts and the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies.

Sheikh Khalifa told Prince Charles that the United Arab Emirates was desirous of ensuring that the people of the UAE were made aware of the tolerance and moderation to be found in the essential concepts of Islam, far removed from any extremism.

He noted that the message of Islam calls for love and peace and for the avoiding of hatred and enmity.

Sheikh Khalifa and Prince Charles then took tea in the Garden Room of Clarence House, together with the Prince's wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, and the accompanying delegation.

Both Sheikh Khalifa and Prince Charles expressed the view that the President's visit would have a positive impact of the developing relationship between the two countries and peoples.
