The president of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan has  issued a decree to establish a UAE Embassy in Harare, Zimbabwe.

The decree is part of several Federal decrees published in the latest edition of the Federal Official Gazette.

Early this year, UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Reem Al Hashimy and the Minister of State in Charge of Energy, Dr Sultan bin Ahmad Sultan Al-Jaber visited Zimbabwe to explore possible areas of cooperation and signed a number of agreements. During the visit UAE pledged to open a full embassy in Zimbabwe before the end of the year.

UAE is a federal state made up of seven federal emirates namely Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras al- Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm al-Quwain.

Its governing structure consists of a Federal Supreme Council (comprising the Rulers of each Emirate), a Council of Ministers and a semi-appointed Federal National Council having an advisory role. Each emirate is governed by its own ruler and has a local government of its own.
