NEW DELHI — The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has awarded its highest civilian award, Zayed Medal, to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, confirmed the news on Thursday, saying PM Modi has given a boost to the comprehensive strategic ties between the two nations.

“We have historical and comprehensive strategic ties with India, reinforced by the pivotal role of my dear friend, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who gave these relations a big boost. In appreciation of his efforts, the UAE President grants him the Zayed Medal,” he tweeted.

Before Modi, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese Premier Xi Jinping, Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and former Pakistan president General Pervez Musharraf have been some of the recipients of this honour.

Modi was also conferred Saudi Arabia’s Order of Abdulaziz al Saud award in 2016.

Recently, he was awarded the Philip Kotler Presidential Award for his “outstanding leadership” for the nation.
