"A meeting at 7RCR... HH Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan meets PM @narendramodi at his residence", the Prime Minister's Office tweeted along with a picture of the two leaders.

"An exceptional tete-a-tete. PM meets Crown Prince for a restricted meeting at 7RCR before talks in the evening", External Affairs Ministry Spokesman Vikas Swarup also tweeted.

Earlier today, the crown prince, who arrived here yesterday on a three-day visit to India, was accorded a ceremonial welcome at the forecourt of the Rashtrapati Bhavan here. Modi broke protocol as he personally received the crown prince on his arrival here.

A slew of agreements, including on defence equipment manufacturing and civil nuclear cooperation, are likely to be signed between India and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) during the crown prince's visit.
