External Affairs Minister (EAM) S Jaishankar on Tuesday met his UAE counterpart Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan on the sidelines of the 78th United Nations General Assembly session in New York City.
During this meeting, the two ministers lauded the swift advancements in bilateral cooperation between India and the UAE and underscored the importance of their regular discussions on regional and global matters.
Jaishankar shared his sentiments on X (formerly Twitter), saying, “Always a pleasure to meet FM @ABZayed of UAE, this time in New York. Appreciate the rapid progress in our bilateral cooperation. Value our regular exchange of perspectives on regional and global issues.”
Notably, India, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, the US, and the European Union (EU) recently unveiled an ambitious infrastructure plan known as the India-Middle East-Europe Economic Corridor. Launched at the G20 summit in New Delhi, this initiative aims to reshape trade routes between the Gulf, Europe, and South Asia by establishing rail and sea links.
Meanwhile, EAM Jaishankar is scheduled to address a high-level session of the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) today.
