Your Excellency President S R Nathan,
Excellencies, Dear Friends in Singapore,
His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said, has honoured me to represent him here today at this ceremony and to fulfil the precious duty of presenting this ship, “the Jewel of Muscat” to the people of Singapore.
We wish here to record a special greeting to the Captain and all the Crew of the Jewel of Muscat, for their great endeavour in sailing the Jewel of Muscat all the way to Singapore. We also wish to express our appreciation to the Working Group and all those who have worked so hard in carrying out this historic project and made it such a success
Thank you, Mr. President for your kind words and feelings. May I further thank the Government and the friendly People of Singapore, for the warm welcome and gracious hospitality, with which we have been received, since we have arrived in this beautiful country.
Peace be upon you.
A’salam Alaikum warahmat ul lah wabarakatoh.
