After concluding his official visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) over the weekend, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi shared highlights from his trip to the Gulf nation and said both the countries will continue to work closely for global good.

Before PM Modi departed for New Delhi, Foreign Secretary Vinay Mohan Kwatra said the trip was "short but very significant, a landmark in the partnership between India and the UAE”.

Briefing about PM Modi’s UAE visit, Kwatra said PM Modi held “extensive discussions with the President of the UAE, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.”

He also termed the visit to be of “tremendous strategic significance” as it showcased the “deep bond of friendship and trust” between the Prime Minister Modi and the UAE President.

India and the UAE signed the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) last year and since the signing of that important strategic landmark agreement between the two countries, the trade and economic partnership and engagement has grown significantly between the two countries, Kwatra said.

He noted that “visit this time puts together another pillar of that strategic economic partnership in a couple of important ways.”

The Foreign Secretary also said that PM Modi’s visit will perhaps open-up “new pathways for India” to look at structuring similar partnership with other countries both in the region and beyond.

PM Modi arrived in UAE on July 15 and was received by Sheikh Khaled Bin Mohamed Bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi at the airport.

On his arrival at the Abu Dhabi airport, PM Modi also received a ceremonial welcome. During his visit, the Prime Minister met the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Khaled bin Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Further, COP28 President-designate, Sultan bin Ahmed Al Jaber also called on PM Modi and the two leaders held discussions on wide-ranging issues.

PM Modi assured India's support to UAE for its COP28 Presidency as well.
