    ROME - Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and head of state of Dubai, has announced on Twitter the creation of two new ministerial posts, of happiness and tolerance.
    The first, according to the sheikh, will guide the ''government's politics to create society's wellbeing and satisfaction''. The minister of tolerance will instead ''instill tolerance, a fundamental value in the UAE'', a country where many religions and ethnic groups cohabit.
    In his tweets, which coincided with the World Government Summit hosted by the UAE, the premier did not say when these reforms will be implemented. The sheikh said the initiative follows consultations with the crown prince of Abu Dhabi (one of seven federated emirates making up the UAE), Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nayhan.
    Last week, Al Maktoum launched, also on Twitter, the search for a new minister of youth whose main requirement was to have less than 25 years of age.
