India, UAE sign five MoUs


India and the United Arab Emirates on Saturday signed five government-to-government MoUs in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who is also Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.

The MoUs are related to energy sector, railways, manpower and financial services, said Ministry of External Affairs. The MoUs were inked after delegation-level talks, led by Modi and the Crown Prince, were held here.

Modi's visit to the United Arab Emirates reflects the two nations' longstanding historical ties, the Crown Prince said on Saturday. "With great appreciation, we welcome the country's guest, the Prime Minister of India His Excellency Honourable Narendra Modi whose presence in the United Arab Emirates, which is connected to India, has a long history and a bright common future," the Crown Prince tweeted.

He said the Prime Minister's visit added to the architecture of friendship and mutual cooperation between the two nations. The Prime Minister received a ceremonial reception as he arrived in Abu Dhabi from Amman after concluding a historic visit to Palestine. "His visit reflects our longstanding historical ties and is a testament to our friendly bilateral relationship."

Later, Members of Committee of the temple which will be inaugurated by PM Modi presented literature on the temple to him and the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.
