‘Honor for entire India!' Modi scores two high state awards on Persian Gulf tour (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “‘Honor for entire India!’ Modi scores two high state awards on Persian Gulf tour (PHOTOS, VIDEO)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The day began with the bestowment of UAE’s highest civil honor award – the Order of Zayed – which Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan placed on Modi’s neck for playing a “pivotal role” in strengthening bilateral ties, which last year reached new heights. 

Humbled to be conferred the ‘Order of Zayed’ a short while ago. More than an individual, this award is for India’s cultural ethos and is dedicated to 130 crore Indians. I thank the UAE Government for this honour.

Humbly accepting the honor, Modi dedicated the recognition of his work to all 1.3 billion Indians, over 3 million of whom live in UAE. The bilateral trade volume last year grew by 20 percent to $59.9bn while Indian export to UAE grew by 7 percent to over $30bn, partly because of UAE’s free trade zones.

Moving on with him Persian Gulf tour, Modi flew to Bahrain, becoming the first Indian Prime Minister to visit the kingdom. During a royal welcome from King Salman Al Khalifa, the Indian leader received yet another award to add to his collection – the Order of the Renaissance – which he dedicated to the entire nation of India.

I humbly accept The King Hamad Order of the Renaissance. This is a recognition of India’s strong friendship with Bahrain, which goes back hundreds of years and is expanding rapidly in the 21st century.
