I feel humbled, dedicate the honour to 130 crore Indians: Narendra Modi tweets after receiving ‘Order of Zayed’

Abu Dhabi, Aug 24 (IBNS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said he felt 'humbled' after being conferred with the ‘Order of Zayed’ by the government of the UAE.

He dedicated the award to the Indians.

"Humbled to be conferred the ‘Order of Zayed’ a short while ago. More than an individual, this award is for India’s cultural ethos and is dedicated to 130 crore Indians. I thank the UAE Government for this honour," he tweeted.

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.
