(UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News / WAM - 25th Jun, 2018) (WAM) - Majid Al Suwaidi, UAE Consul-General in New York, attended the official opening of Grenada's new Parliament building in the capital city St George's.
The UAE, along with Mexico, provided funds for the construction of the new building, after H.H.

"The new Parliament building is a symbol of the Grenadian people's civic pride and political heritage and the UAE is honoured to have contributed to its construction. Our relations with Grenada are founded on the common belief on the right of all nations to peaceful co-existence, development and prosperity," he added.
The UAE and Grenada have been enjoying cordial relations and strong cooperation since 1975. The UAE has recently provided support to energy projects in Grenada as part of the UAE-Caribbean Renewable Energy Fund. It also welcomed Grenada's decision to open a consulate in Dubai.
