Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday laid a wreath at Wahat Al Karama, a war memorial of the UAE's brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the nation.
"Inspiring way to begin another hectic day! PM @narendramodi paid tributes to brave soldiers of UAE who made ultimate sacrifice in the service of UAE at Wahat Al Karama, 'Oasis of Dignity!' in Abu Dhabi," Indian External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted. After laying the wreath, Modi took a tour of the memorial and put his thoughts on the visitors' book.

Literally meaning "oasis of dignity", Wahat Al Karama comprises 31 massive aluminium-clad tablets, each leaning on the other, symbolising the unity, solidarity and mutual support that bind together the leadership and citizens of the United Arab Emirates with the servicemen and women who protect them.
The long spine at the rear of the memorial is engraved with the Pledge of Allegiance of the UAE Armed Forces and symbolically supports the other panels.
