The prime minister of the UAE and the Ruler of Dubai just announced on-air that the official name of the tower is Burj Khalifa (Khalifa is the president of the UAE). if you read in between the lines this shows that whatever is in Dubai is for Abu Dhabi and whatever is in Abu Dhabi is for Dubai

You saw the sign next to the inside of the tower with Burj Khalifa on it.

I don't believe it. The panels all over BD Downtown are already telling Burj DUbai. It would be insane to change the name now.
