UAE Deputy Permanent Representative, a.i., Ms. Hind Naser Al Owais, welcomed the students from South Windsor High School in Connecticut at the offices of the UAE Permanent Mission.
The Deputy Permanent Representative and UAE Mission delegate Ms. Taif Mohammad Al Amiri briefed the students on the United Arab Emirates and its positions on the issues that will be debated during their upcoming Model United Nations. These include UN Security Council Reform, global partnership for development and sustainable transportation.
The diplomats gave the students insights into UAE policy positions on these important issues and shared highlights of their personal experiences representing the United Arab Emirates at the United Nations.
