Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived at the Abu Dhabi Presidential Airport on Sunday for his maiden official visit to the Gulf nation.
Upon his arrival, he was received by the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
There was a ceremonial greeting for the PM, who was accompanied out of the airport by the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.
PM Modi then met with the UAE dignitaries and exchanged pleasantries with them.
This is the first visit by an Indian prime minister to the Gulf nation in 34 years.
Indian ambassador to UAE, T P Seetharam, had yesterday said that Modi's visit can open up great possibilities and deepen existing relations.
"Diplomacy receives a boost when the Prime Minister of a country comes for a visit. A visit like this would open up greater possibilities for the huge Indian community here," Seetharam said.
