Modi Breaks Protocol, Receives Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Personally
This is the first visit by the Abu Dhabi crown prince and the meeting has potential, according to political experts.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday broke protocol as
he received Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE
Armed Forces General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, as he arrived on
a three-day visit to India.
Modi on Twitter said that this is Sheikh Mohammed’s first visit.
Modi welcomed Mohamed with a warm embrace as the latter alighted from the aircraft at the Palam Technical Area in New Delhi.
The crown prince is being accompanied by a high-level
delegation comprising cabinet ministers, senior officials and business leaders.
A slew of agreements, including defence equipment manufacturing and civil nuclear cooperation, are likely to be signed between India and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) during the crown prince’s visit.
