Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his UAE counterpart Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum on Sunday held an engaging discussion on expanding defence and trade ties between the two countries, an Indian official said.
The two leaders also discussed ways to enhance cooperation in investment, security and people-to-people contacts to strengthen our comprehensive strategic partnership, Indian External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said after the meeting between Modi and Al Maktoum, who is also the UAE Vice President and the ruler of Dubai.

Earlier in the day, Modi addressed a gathering of the Indian community. He also witnessed via videoconferencing the laying of a foundation stone of an Indian temple to be constructed on the Dubai-Abu Dhabi highway.
He also paid tributes at the UAE war memorial Wahat Al Karama near Abu Dhabi.
After visiting Palestine earlier on Saturday, Modi arrived in Abu Dhabi later in the evening on the second leg of his West Asia and the Gulf visit.
