The close relationship between India and UAE was again revealed as the facade of the iconic ADNOC Group Tower in Abu Dhabi was lit with the flags of India and the UAE. It also portrayed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The government took the decision to celebrate PM Modi’s victory.
” Indian Ambassador to the UAE Navdeep Singh Suri wrote on his Twitter handle, “Now this is true friendship! As PM @narendramodi is sworn in for a second term in office, the iconic @AdnocGroup tower in Abu Dhabi is lit up with India and UAE flags and portraits of our PM and of HH Sheikh”. He also tagged video of the tower.
Mr. Suri told the reporters, “Beyond the symbolism of these images is also the clear direction that Prime Minister Modi and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed have provided to diplomats like us to make ‘the India-UAE Comprehensive Strategic Partnership’ a truly vibrant example of what we can achieve when we work together.”
The envoy also claimed that India-UAE relations have transformed and improved since Prime Minister Modi’s visit to the UAE in August 2015. “The close friendship that has blossomed over the last four years between our Prime Minister and the Crown Prince is well-known. The whole world can see it today in this unique celebration of the re-election of the Prime Minister for a fresh five-year term,” he added.
Mr. Suri highlighted because of the improved relations, it has made an exceptional impact on areas such as food and energy security, manpower and skills, literature and culture, trade and investment flows. “So, as the Prime Minister starts his second term in office, there is tremendous sense of optimism for India-UAE ties. We now have the opportunity to build upon the strong platform that we have created over the last four years, and to make the coming period a truly ”Golden Era” in our relationship,” Mr. Suri further said.
