Sheikh Khalifa died earlier today at the age of 73.
Following the footsteps of his late father, Sheikh Khalifa always supported joint Arab action and rights, Abul Gheit said.
The UAE has remained a model of giving, and solidarity with the entire Arab world, Abul Gheit added.
He ordered the Arab League’s flag to be flown at half-mast for three days.
