India, UAE Agree To Strengthen Ties In The Post-COVID Era

Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Monday had a conversation with his UAE counterpart, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, during which they agreed to work together to strengthen ties in the post-COVID era.

“A great pleasure as always to connect to HH @ABZayed, FM of #UAE. Reviewed the entire gamut of our special ties. Will work together to raise its quality even further in the post-COVID era,” Jaishankar tweeted.

On May 25, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had a telephonic conversation with Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and conveyed greetings on Eid-ul-Fitr to the government and people of UAE.

During the phone call, the two leaders expressed satisfaction about the effective cooperation between the two countries during the COVID-19 pandemic situation.

Last month, the UAE sent a plane carrying seven metric tonnes of medical supplies to India to bolster the country’s efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19.
