The prime minister also called Dubai Expo a historic event and said this will go long way, in further building India's relations with UAE.

"This is a historic expo. It is the first one to be held in the middle east, Africa, and South Asia region. India is participating with one of the largest Pavillion in this expo. I am sure, the Expo will go long way, in further building our deep and historic relations with UAE," he said.
