Days of UAE culture underway in Belarus

From national costumes to oriental farmsteads: Days of culture of the United Arab Emirates solemnly opened in Belarus. The Art Gallery of Mikhail Savitsky became the venue for the display of cultural values. Bright colors on the paintings of Arab artists, exquisite calligraphy and folk craft - from jewelry to the famous oriental spices - will help feel the color of the UAE people.

Khalifa Hamiss:
We came to you to show our history, our traditions, what the Emirates were earlier. Here I am now making devices for fishing, it takes a whole day. Before I came to you, I knew nothing about Belarus. I just heard that there is such a country. Here we came to get acquainted. It's very beautiful, I like it.

An extensive program will take place within the framework of cultural days. A concert of classical and folk music of the masters of arts of the United Arab Emirates will take place in Minsk. They will be accompanied by the State Chamber Orchestra of Belarus. The artists will surprise the public not only in Minsk, but also in Mogilev.

Walid Rashid al-Zaabi, Director of Heritage and Arts Department of the Ministry of Culture and Development of the UAE:
The days of UAE culture in your country are timed to the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations. For us, this is a very important event. We hope that next year the days of Belarusian culture will be held in the UAE.

These are the first days of UAE culture in Belarus. The countries have close friendly relations in many spheres. The pearl of the Persian Gulf is an old partner of Belarus.
