He will discuss the bilateral, regional and international matters of mutual interest, Khaleej Times quoted the official statement issued this Sunday.
Prime Minister Modi would 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 Prime Minister Modi for giving a big boost to bilateral relations between the two countries, the statement by the ministry added.
The award in the name of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan acquires special significance as it was awarded to premier Modi in the year of the birth centenary of Sheikh Zayed. In February last year, Modi visited UAE at the event of World Government Summit.
The bilateral trade between the two countries worth billions of dollars and UAE is one of the largest trade partners of India. Modi will also hold talks with Prince Sheikh Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, Prime Minister of Bahrain, and dinner will also be hosted by King Sheikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa of Bahrain in the hour of Narendra Modi.
India enjoys friendly ties with Bahrain and both the states also exchange high-level visits. The bilateral trade between the two countries exceeded one billion dollars in the year 2018-2019.
