@ShapiroUri shared a tweet of this major flashback of the Abu Dhabi pavilion
The late Founding Father His Highness Sheikh Zayed presented the Abu Dhabi Pavilion at the Osaka Expo 70.
It was 50 years ago when #AbuDhabi pavilion at Expo 70 in Osaka, Japan was opened to the public in 1970. Its presence was a symbol of confidence in the future, a sign from Sheikh Zayed that the country he was building was ready to join the community of nations. #UAEHistory pic.twitter.com/GL19i4XjgF
