The 'selfie diplomacy' was the talk of the town on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's first visit to the Emirate.
Clad in a cream-coloured kurta with an orange and white stole, Modi visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand mosque, the UAE's largest and the world's third largest. He walked around in the mosque and looked at the architecture as he was briefed on the exquisite skill that went behind creating this key place of worship.
PM Modi posed for a selfie, flashing a smile with the sheikhs during his visit, the first to the UAE by an Indian premier in 34 years.
"Memorable moments recorded for posterity. PM @narendramodi takes a selfie & writes about the visit in the Guest Book," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.
The prime minister has a penchant for selfies, and the 'selfie diplomacy' has emerged as an integral part of his overseas trips.
