Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – Activists on social media circulated videos of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, greeting the elements of the reception ceremony during his visit to Turkey by saying “Hello Askar.”
This came during a review of the Turkish honor guard at the reception ceremony of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, which was presented by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the capital, Ankara, on the first visit of its kind in 12 years.
It is noteworthy that the UAE announced, on Wednesday, the establishment of a $10 billion fund to support investments in Turkey, coinciding with Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed’s visit to Turkey for the first time since 2012.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed’s visit comes in response to Erdogan’s invitation, and the office of the Turkish Presidency’s Communication Department stated that they will discuss bilateral relations at all levels, and the necessary steps to develop cooperation between the two countries, in addition to current regional and international issues, according to the official Turkish “Anatolia” news agency.
