    The President of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Zaid Bin Sultan, arrived in Tunisia on Thursday (1 August) to attend celebrations marking the 71st birthday of President Habib Bourguiba. The celebrations continue until 7 August. The Sheikh arrived from Iraq on the second leg of a tour which will also take him to Algeria, Morocco, Mauritania and Libya.
