India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has held talks with Abu Dhabi’s crown prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan on Monday, during which Modi thanked Al-Nahyan for inviting India to attend the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

According to news reports, prime minister Modi and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, as well as deputy supreme commander of the UAE Armed Forces, has expressed happiness over the growing strength of all-round bilateral cooperation between both two sides.

While quoting the telephonic conversation between Al-Nahyan and Modi, according to a statement released by the prime minister’s office, stated, “They reiterated their commitment to further consolidate the bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership.”

The prime minister Modi took this opportunity to pay respect and thank Al-Nahyan for the invitation offered to India to address the OIC foreign ministers’ council as a “guest of honour” on March 1 in Abu Dhabi. In a major diplomatic achievement, India for the first time addressed the OIC meeting.

The statement added: “He expressed hope that this historical participation would contribute to attaining the common objectives of peace and progress.”
India’s participation in the summit came despite Pakistan’s foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi threatening to boycott the OIC meeting if external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj attends it.
