First Hindu temple in Abu Dhabi – level 2

22-02-2024 07:00

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the UAE to strengthen ties and show India’s influence. This trip happened just before India’s elections.

Although there were troubles between the UAE and India in the past, Modi inaugurated Abu Dhabi’s first Hindu temple. The UAS is home to over 3 million Indians, and Modi is focusing on them now.

The visit also led to agreements on trade and investments. The two countries are working together more than ever.

Modi wants to boost his image as a global leader, and he needs Hindus to support him in the elections.

Difficult words: inaugurate (to formally open or start), investment (putting money into a business or activity), boost (to help or encourage something to increase or improve).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

How has Modi's recent visit to the UAE impacted the relationship between the two countries and what key agreements were made during his trip?
