New Delhi, July 4: United Arab Emirates (UAE) foreign minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan is scheduled on July 7 to embark on an official three-day visit to India, in a bid to strengthen bilateral relations between the two sides, as well as, to bolster joint Comprehensive Strategic Partnership.
According to news reports, Sheikh Abdullah is expected to hold talks with Indian external affairs minister S. Jaishankar. He is also likely to call on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, according to an official statement released by the MEA.
The visit appears significance as Abu Dhabi has urged to a de-escalation of heightened tensions in the Gulf region and called on world powers to mediate ease tensions and save maritime energy and traffic supplies in Gulf of Omar, following the series of attacks on oil tankers and facilities last month in the waters.
Last week, Abdullah paid an official visit to Russia’s capital, Moscow, and held dialogues with foreign minister Sergei Lavrov over wats to reduce tensions between Iran and the United States.
