"... but what was particularly noteworthy was [the fact] that on more than one occasion he [the crown prince] said that the contribution of Indians in building the UAE is what every citizen of Abu Dhabi appreciates," Gokhale added.
Crown Prince Al Nahyan said that the "Indians with their hard work and trustworthiness have built this country. The Indian community can be trusted. Trust was the word used," informed Gokhale.
Branding the reception at Abu Dhabi an "exceptional honour", Gokhale said, "The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi himself and the members of the royal family were present at the airport to receive Prime Minister Modi. This is an exceptional honour."
