Dubai's Burj Khalifa celebrated the visit of Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz, Saudi Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence to the UAE, by lighting up in colours of the Saudi national flag.
A picture of the same was shared by the Dubai Media Office on its official Twitter account.

He was warmly received by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, earlier during the day.
"I am delighted to welcome my brother and friend, Mohammed bin Salman to his second home, the UAE. Our dear guest is among his family," Sheikh Mohamed tweeted soon after receiving the royal guest.
Cannons boomed 22 rounds as Mohammed bin Salman's royal cavalcade arrived at the Presidential Palace at around 6:15pm. Men mounted on horseback and carrying UAE and Saudi flags ushered in the visiting prince to the Presidential Palace compound where he was accorded a state welcome.
Jets flew above the Presidential Palace and cabinet ministers and Sheikhs greeted the state guest.
National anthems of both countries were played and Mohammed bin Salman inspected the royal guard. Both the leaders held closed door meetings where they are expected to discuss strengthening of strategic partnership between the two countries.
