The antiquities expert Salah Ali Hasan, Head of Antiquities Section said: We are aware about a lot of the National Archives’ acquisitions that document the significant stages of the UAE’s history and heritage. We look forward to cooperating with the National Archives to obtain some documentary films and historical photographs of the Rulers of Fujairah, particularly Sheikh Mohammed Bin Hamad Bin Abdulla Al Sharqi, the father of the current Ruler, Sheikh Hamad Bin Mohammed Al Sharqi and one of the founding ancestors who worked with the founding leader Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan to establish the edifice of the Union. As Sheikh Mohammed Bin Hamad Al Sharqi marked his print in the Emirate of Fujairah's various life aspects, we in the Emirate of Fujairah seek to collect all documents on his activities and preserve them for future generations. We know for sure that the National Archives keeps the legacy of the great leaders who established the Union and developed the UAE to reach the most developed countries in record time.

Mr. Salah Ali Hasan accompanied by Aisha Salem Al Kaabi, antiquities expert, went on a tour of Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Hall.  It is a unique addition to the national effort to preserve the Nation’s memory and a wide window through which visitors can learn about the UAE’s ancient history and the journey towards the establishment of the Union.

The delegation also visited the Presidential Archives Section, which contains photographs and video films that document the march of the Late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and H.H. Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE President's local, regional, Arab and international activities. In addition to the historical photographs of the main public figures, which are considered precious heritage to be preserved and transferred to future generations and made accessible to researchers and scholars.
