Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to visit UAE this weekend

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to visit the UAE on August 23- 24 and Bahrain on August 24-25, the Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has announced. During his state visit to the UAE, Modi would be meeting His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces to discuss bilateral, regional and international matters of mutual interest, according to a statement from the ministry. “Prime Minister Modi would receive the Order of Zayed, the highest civil decoration of the UAE which was conferred earlier in April 2019 in recognition of the distinguished leadership of Prime Minister Modi for giving a big boost to bilateral relations between the two countries.

“The award in the name of Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founding father of the UAE, acquires special significance as it was awarded to Prime Minister Modi in the year of the birth centenary of Shaikh Zayed,” it said. The ministry said India and the UAE enjoy warm, close and multi-faceted relations underpinned by cultural, religious and economic linkages which, during the Prime Minister’s previous visit to the UAE during August 2015, stood elevated to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership. In February 2018 Modi visited the UAE as Chief Guest at the World Government Summit.

Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan had visited India during February 2016 and then during January 2017 as the Chief Guest at the Republic Day celebrations. “With a robust flow of bilateral investments and an annual bilateral trade of about US$ 60 billion, the UAE is our third-largest trade partner. Also, the UAE is the fourth-largest exporter of crude oil for India. A 3.3 million-strong vibrant Indian community in the UAE nourishes the vibrant people-to-people contacts between our two friendly countries. The visit would further strengthen our friendly bilateral ties with the UAE.”
