He will express his sympathy for the passing of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
The UAE will be visited by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on June 28, according to the Indian Ministry of External Affairs.
After attending the G7 Summit in Germany, the prime minister will fly to the UAE. PM Modi will express his condolences for the passing of the late His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan during the visit.
“On June 28, after attending the G7 Summit, the Prime Minister will visit the UAE to express his condolences to the family of former UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Additionally, the Prime Minister will use the occasion to congratulate His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan on his election as the new President of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Abu Dhabi.
The late Sheikh Khalifa will get another homage from a world leader with the Indian prime minister.
The government added, “The Prime Minister will leave the UAE that evening, June 28.”
First visit by Modi following CEPA agreement
Modi was supposed to visit the UAE in January of this year, but the trip was postponed. During that trip, it was hoped to sign the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement between the UAE and India. However, Sheikh Mohamed and PM Modi were there when the agreement was inked in February during a virtual meeting. In five years, the historic pact hopes to increase bilateral trade to $115 billion, solidifying India’s position as one of the UAE’s most important and reliable trading partners.
The free trade agreement has been experiencing significant momentum between the two countries, and PM Modi’s visit will be the first one since it was signed. Outreach programs and bilateral ministerial discussions on the deal’s advantages are now in progress.
Modi received the “Order of Zayed,” the highest honor bestowed by the UAE, on his most recent visit. Additionally, in an unusual act of respect for the late president of the UAE, India on May 14 proclaimed a day of national mourning.
