This is the third visit of PM Modi to UAE in four years and it is hoped that it will give a new momentum to the already existing strong ties between India and the UAE.
During the two day visit, the Prime Minister will be honoured with the highest national award of UAE – the order of Zayed.
UAE Minister of Tolerance Sheikh Nahayan Bin Mubarak Al Nahayan has said that the Highest National Award to PM Modi is a mark of special relationship between India and UAE.
He added that UAE think of India as a special great friend and a respected trusted partner.
UAE President in April had announced the decision to confer its highest award on PM Modi in recognition of the pivotal role played by him in enhancing bilateral ties between the two countries to the level of comprehensive strategic relations.
