Umm Al Quwain street renamed after Kuwait’s Sheikh Sabah


UMM Al QUWAIN – The Al Corniche Street in Umm Al Quwain in the UAE has been renamed after the late Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah.

Sheikh Saud bin Rashid Al Mu’alla, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Umm Al Quwain, ordered the street renamed in recognition of Sheikh Sabah’s “great services” for Kuwait and the world.

It is also an acknowledgement of the great role that Sheikh Sabah played before the establishment of the UAE Union and his direct follow-up to many of Kuwait’s development initiatives in the region.

Sheikh Sabah continued to strengthen the strong brotherly relations between the UAE and Kuwait through various positions he held.

Sheikh Sabah died on Tuesday (September 29) at the age of 91, after 14 years of serving as Kuwaiti Emir. ICA/Expat Media
