Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan assumes as Emirati president after the death on Friday of Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan at 73 years of age.

The Emirati government announced an official mourning period of 40 days throughout the country that will begin with the suspension, for three days, of activities in public and private institutions starting this Friday.

Mohamed bin Zayed has been de facto ruling the country since 2014, when the late President Khalifa bin Zayed suffered a stroke that removed him from public life, and also from the decision-making process.

The new president of the United Arab Emirates has been determined in recent years to turn the Arab country into one of the greatest regional powers, both at a military, economic and political level.
