UAE on 23 August, Bahrain on 24th: PM Modi’s Gulf schedule

While Modi will receive the Order of Zayed in the UAE, this will be the first Bahrain visit of an Indian prime minister


- Advertisment -
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be visiting UAE and Bahrain later this month.
During his state visit to the UAE, Modi will meet His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces to discuss bilateral, regional and international matters of mutual interest.
United Arab Emirates President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan will honour Prime Minister Narendra Modi with the Zayed Medal. Abu Dhabi’s crown prince and army’s Deputy Supreme Commander Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed had taken to Twitter in April to publicise this information.
Modi will be in the UAE on 23-24 August, and then fly to Bahrain for his 24-25 August visit.
In the UAE, Prime Minister Modi will receive the Order of Zayed, the highest civil decoration of the UAE, which was conferred earlier in April 2019 in recognition of the distinguished leadership of Modi for giving a big boost to bilateral relations between the two countries. The award in the name of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founding father of the UAE, acquires special significance as it was awarded to Modi in the year of the birth centenary of Sheikh Zayed.
Sheikh Mohammed had said in a tweet in April when the award was decided, “We express our appreciation by giving our medal to our friend, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to develop a friendly relationship between the two countries and to create a new dimension of cooperation in different fields.”
Sheikh Mohammed had praised the diversity, tolerance, coexistence and culture of respect in India.
Prior to Modi, President Vladimir Putin of Russia, Queen Elizabeth II of Britain, King Salman of Saudi Arabia and China’s President Xi Jinping have received this honour.
Later on, the visit to Bahrain will be the first ever prime ministerial visit from India to this Gulf country.
