UAE will honor PM Modi with Zayed Medal for highest civilian award
The United Arab Emirates will honor Prime Minister Narendra Modi for taking the relationship between the two countries to a new height. UAE's crown prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan announced on Thursday. He said that there is our historic and comprehensive strategic relationship with India, which has strengthened my dear friend the important role of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has given a big boost to these relations. To encourage their efforts, the President of the UAE will honor him with Zayed Medal.
Last month Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan had visited India. During that time the two countries had said that there is a need to create 'every possible pressure' in such countries which support terrorist activities. India and Saudi Arabia also agreed to the formation of biennial summit meetings and strategic partnership council.
However, in a joint dialogue with the media after the delegation level talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who came to India on tour, none of the two leaders gave a reference to Pakistan.
In his remarks, Prince Mohammad described extremism and terrorism as a matter of concern for both the countries and said that Saudi Arabia would cooperate fully with India. He said, "As far as terrorism and extremism are concerned, it is a concern for both of us. We want to tell India that we are ready to cooperate with you in every way. We are ready to work with not just India but all the countries of the neighborhood so that the future of future generations is secure.
Prince Mohammed said that India has offered an investment of more than $ 100 billion and its country will work to make an investment for both countries beneficial. He said that the relations between the two countries are 'older than history' and are involved in our blood.
The growing number of Hindi speakers in the United Arab Emirates can also be used to assess relations between the two countries. Official figures show that the total UAE population is 9 million. There are two-thirds of the migrants. There are 26 lakh Indians in these migrants. It is 30 percent of the total population and it is the largest part of the migrants. It is also important that the Hindi language has become the third official language used in Abu Dhabi. Before that, it was Arabic and English, but now Hindi has also been added to it.
