London:

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will fly to the United Arab Emirates on Sunday to pay his condolences following the death of President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, Downing Street said.

Johnson's visit will also "reinforce the close bond between the United Kingdom and United Arab Emirates," the statement said.

Those bonds "will continue under the Presidency of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan," it added.

In a statement on Friday, Johnson expressed his sadness at the Sheikh's death, calling him "a wise and respected leader who will be missed enormously".
