Abu Dhabi, Aug 24 (IBNS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi was on Saturday conferred with the UAE's highest civilian award ‘Order of Zayed’ at Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Modi is currently visiting the UAE.

He reached Abu Dhabi after completing his tour to France.

What is Order of Zayed:

Order of Zayed is 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 award in the name of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founding father of the UAE, acquires special significance as it was awarded to Prime Minister Modi in the year of the birth centenary of Sheikh Zayed.

India and the UAE enjoy warm, close and multi-faceted relations underpinned by cultural, religious and economic linkages which, during the Prime Minister’s previous visit to the UAE during August, 2015, stood elevated to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership, read a statement issued by the Ministry of External Affairs.

In February 2018 Prime Minister visited UAE as Chief Guest at the World Government Summit.

Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan has visited India during February 2016 and then during January, 2017 as the Chief Guest at the Republic Day celebrations.
