Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in UAE: what transpired during his visit

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the UAE on Tuesday (June 28) after attending the G7 summit in Germany.

UAE President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan received Modi at the Presidential Airport in Abu Dhabi. The two then held a meeting where Modi offered his condolences on the death of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The Indian prime minister recalled Sheikh Khalifa’s honourable humanitarian values. He also congratulated Sheikh Mohamed on his election as UAE President.

Sheikh Mohamed praised the Indian community for its role in strengthening the cultural and economic ties between the UAE and India.

The meeting between Sheikh Mohamed and Modi was attended by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, Crown Prince of Dubai, Sheikh Hamed bin Zayed, member of the Executive Council, and Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Tahnoon, adviser for special affairs at the Ministry of Presidential Affairs. Ministers, officials and delegates accompanying Modi were also present.

The Indian prime minister left for New Delhi on Tuesday evening.

In July, Modi is expected to join the first summit for I2U2—a newly formed group consisting of the US, UAE, Israel and India to “re-energise and revitalize alliances” around the world.

He will join the summit along with Sheikh Mohamed, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, and US President Joe Biden, whose administration is organizing the event. ICA/Expat Media
