Map of the United Arab Emirates
The United Arab Emirates or the UAE is a country in the Middle East. Its capital is Abu Dhabi which is the largest city. It is made up of seven emirates which used to have a special peace treaty (or truce) with the United Kingdom. This is why their old name was the Trucial States.
The country's official language is Arabic. The country has some traditions and one of them is eating dates. That is why date palms are often grown in the UAE.
