UAE-India ties get deeper and stronger
UAE and India sign seven key agreements.
When two countries shift gears in their relationship, the bonhomie is for all to see. It continued on Thursday, the second day of His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan's visit to India when the UAE and New Delhi signed seven agreements on cyber security, infrastructure investment, renewable energy, currency swaps, insurance, culture and skill development. Another pact is expected to be signed on Friday
The camaraderie was evident from the moment the jet carrying the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces touched down in the Indian capital on Wednesday.
The Big Change

This was not the time and place for protocol and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was at hand to receive him and his high-level delegation.
On Thursday the two sides were in a hurry to get down to the process of implementation of several agreements that were signed during the Indian PM's visit to the UAE last August.
Shaikh Mohammed and Modi later held talks at the Indian PM's residence on the status of the agreements. The two leaders discussed a number of regional and international issues of mutual interest. "We have passed a milestone in our bilateral relationship,'' said Shaikh Mohammed.
