PM Modi Awarded UAE's Highest Civilian Honour Zayed Medal

As an appreciation for giving a “big boost’ to bilateral strategic ties, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was awarded Zayed Medal, the United Arab Emirates' highest civilian award on 4th April. President of the UAE Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan conferred Prime Minister Modi with the award, the highest decoration awarded to kings, presidents and heads of states.
The Zayed Medal has earlier been awarded to Russian President Vladimir Putin, former US president George W Bush, former France president Nicolas Sarkozy, German Chancellor Angela Markel, Queen Elizabeth II from the United Kingdom and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

A recent tweet by Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Mohamed Bin Zayed said, “We have historical and comprehensive strategic ties with India, reinforced by the pivotal role of my dear friend, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who gave these relations a big boost. In appreciation of his efforts, the UAE President grants him the Zayed Medal,” 

Modi visited the UAE for the second time as Prime Minister in February last year and held wide-ranging talks with the Crown Prince.

After their talks, the two sides signed five agreements related to energy sector, railways, manpower and financial services. The Prime Minister’s first visit to the UAE took place in August 2015.
