Investment, counter-terrorism among 16 India-UAE pacts likely

Both countries increasing security cooperation, says UAE envoy

New Delhi: At least 16 pacts in a wide range of sectors like nuclear energy, oil, IT, aerospace and railways, facilitating billions of dollars of investment by UAE in India, are likely to be inked during the visit of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to India here beginning Wednesday.
Ways to contain radicalism, stepping up counter-terrorism cooperation and dealing with Daesh will figure prominently in talks Shaikh Mohammad will have with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday, Ahmed Al Banna, UAE Ambassador said.
A major focus of the three-day visit which comes around six months after Modi’s trip to UAE, will be on stepping up economic ties.
