After the card launch, there will also be a ceremonial welcome for PM Modi, at around 1:30 pm.
And then, half an hour later, the Indian PM will be awarded the ‘Order of Zayed', the highest civilian decoration of UAE. He had been selected for this, earlier this year, in April, in recognition of his distinguished leadership that boosted up the bilateral relations between the two countries.
As the prime minister, Narendra Modi’s first visit to the UAE was exactly four years ago, in August 2015. After that, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, had visited India in 2016. In 2017, he was also the chief guest at India’s Republic Day parade.
Last year, in 2018, PM Modi had visited UAE again, as a chief guest at the 6th World Government Summit in Dubai.Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
