    (ANSAmed) - NAPLES, JANUARY 28 - The diplomatic negotiations that brought about independence and the birth of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 1971 will be remembered in a photo exhibition planned from March 17 to December 12 at the Etihad Museum in Dubai.

    The exhibition, titled "Photographs in Dialogue UAE - 1971 - UK", will highlight relations between Great Britain and the UAE between the 1960s and the 1970s.

    The photographs show political leaders from both countries in diplomatic negotiations to end Great Britain's political presence in the area.

    Included in the exhibition are some photographs on loan from the National Portrait Gallery in London and some from private collectors in the UAE, in addition to archive materials.

    There is a photograph of Queen Elizabeth II and a rare series of shots taken in 1961 of Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, then head of the emirate of Dubai.

    The current territory of the UAE is made up of six states that were under the British protectorate.

    In 1968, the English decided to end the protectorate, a decision that brought, three years later, the union of the six countries in the UAE.(ANSAmed).
