EAM Jaishankar Holds Deep Talks with UAE’s Al Nahyan

Minister of External Affairs S. Jaishankar and his UAE counterpart, Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, met to discuss current and future cooperation and ties in fields such as education, finance, and trade. According to the Ministry of External Affairs, Jaishankar’s visit, which came shortly after his reappointment, shows how committed India is to its relations with the UAE.

The ministers discussed unexplored potential areas and regional and global concerns and expressed delight over the progress made in many industries.

Additionally, they talked about the Israel-Hamas war and how it affected the area. Calling the temple a cultural bridge and a symbol of friendship between India and the United Arab Emirates, Jaishankar visited the BAPS mandir during his tour and took part in an International Yoga Day programme at the Louvre Museum.

The visit comes after previous discussions between UAE President Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and PM Narendra Modi, with a focus on maintaining high-level communication.

The two countries have a trade deal that is anticipated to increase bilateral trade to $100 billion in five years, as well as a comprehensive strategic alliance. 3.3 million Indian nationals live in the UAE, making it one of the biggest expat groups in West Asia.
