 New Delhi: In a break from protocol, Prime Minister today reached the Palam Air Force station here to receive of Sheikh Mohammed bin who arrived here on his second visit to India, during which he will be chief guest at the Republic Day function.

The Prime Minister’s gesture in receiving the Crown Prince in person is being seen as reflective of the importance he is giving to India’s growing economic, defence and security ties with the Gulf Emirate. Prince Nahyan, who is accompanied by a high-level business delegation, will hold one-to-one meeting with Mr Modi at his Lok Kalyan Marg residence, which will be followed by delegation-level talks between the two leaders at the House.
Talks are expected to be followed by several important agreements in investments, defence manufacturing and other areas. The Crown Prince will also meet President Pranab Mukkerjee in the evening, and also Vice-President Hamid Anasari before that. The leaders of the business and industry accompanying the Crown Prince will also visit Vishakhapatnam on January 27 and 28. (UNI)
