Prime Minister Modi is in Dubai for the second leg of his three-nation visit. This is his second state visit to the UAE after August 2015. PM Modi arrived in Abu Dhabi on Saturday and was received by the Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan at the airport. The two leaders held wide-ranging talks after which the two sides signed five agreements related to energy sector, railways, manpower and financial services. Buildings in Abu Dhabi, including the iconic Burj Khalifa were lit in the colours of the Indian flag to welcome PM Modi. Ahead of his four-day visit, the prime minister's office had called relations with Middle East and West Asia a priority for India.
