On Sunday, the United Arab Emirates Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah-bin Zayed Al-Nahyan arrives in India and will hold talks with Indian Foreign Minister S Jaishankar to boost cooperation in key sectors such as energy and trade. 

On Monday, he will also call on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and will participate in a business round-table. 

It would offer the two sides an option to explore new fields of cooperation to strengthen their comprehensive strategic partnership, said Ministry of External Affairs. 

The visit of Sheikh Abdullah-bin Zayed Al-Nahyan comes at a time the issue-related to energy security is high on the country’s agenda because the situation rises out of the United States Sanctions on crude oil importing from Iran. 

The bilateral ties between the UAE and India are on an upswing in the past years. 

The United Arab Emirates is the third-largest trade partner and fourth-largest energy suppliers of India. It is home to 3.3 million-strong Indian Community, which is the largest in the Gulf region. 

In August 2015, PM Modi had visited the UAE, during which the two nations has decided to boost their relation to a comprehensive strategic partnership. 

PM Modi has also visited the UAE in February 2018. 

As the chairperson of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, the UAE has invited India as “Guest of Honor” at the 46th Council of Foreign Ministers meeting of the grouping in March 2019 in Abu Dhabi.
