    India and UAE join hands against terrorism

    NEW DELHI: India made a big move in its West Asia strategy on Monday, while the UAE took a decisive step away from its traditional close relationship with Pakistan to line up with India.

    On his first visit to Abu Dhabi, PM Narendra Modi and Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed AI Nahyan agreed to cooperate against terrorism, radicalism and organized crime that, if followed through, could deny the likes of Dawood Ibrahim, Lashkar-e-Taiba and other terror groups from using the Emirates as a springboard against India.

    For the first time, reflecting changed geopolitical realities, India and the UAE agreed to "enhance cooperation in counter-terrorism operations, intelligence sharing" and control of flow of terror funds. In a breakthrough agreement, both countries will "control, regulate and share information on flow of funds that could have a bearing on radicalization activities and cooperate in interdicting illegal flows and take action against concerned individuals and organizations".

    More important, and one that reflects the strategic direction the UAE has chosen, a joint statement said the two nations "oppose terrorism in all forms and manifestations ... calling on all states to reject and abandon the use of terrorism against other countries, dismantle terrorism infrastructures where they exist, and bring perpetrators of terrorism to justice".

    This is a direct reference to Pakistan's activities, particularly with reference to 26/11 accused Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, without naming it, and shows Islamabad's declining equity in what used to be its strategic backyard. Further, both countries asked all countries (read Pakistan) "to fully respect and sincerely implement their commitments to resolve disputes bilaterally and peacefully, without resorting to violence and terrorism".

    Modi and the Crown Prince will now meet regularly, while the national security advisers of both countries will meet every six months to take this forward.

    The UAE's shift is remarkable because the Emirates' sheikhs continue to have close personal relationships in Pakistan, including the country being their favourite game hunting destination. The UAE was also one of three countries which supported a Taliban government in Afghanistan in the 1990s. For decades, the UAE has been a safe transit for terror groups, organized crime and drug networks from Pakistan, Afghanistan and even India. Sources said the UAE signing on to this agreement signals a new dawn.

    India has abandoned its decades-old reticence regarding the Gulf and Middle East — the UAE will be the first Gulf country with whom India is talking "interoperability" for both humanitarian assistance and conflict situations, joint manufacture of defence equipment and maritime security cooperation.

    India's new outreach to the UAE may have repercussions in two countries — Pakistan and Iran. The UAE has a contentious relationship with Iran, while Pakistan and the UAE have been very close — the Taliban-hijacked IC-814 made a stop in Dubai after taking off from Amritsar.

    By upgrading the bilateral relationship to a "comprehensive strategic partnership", Modi plans to open different sectors of the Indian economy to investment from the UAE. India hopes to benefit from the $800 billion UAE sovereign wealth fund and the joint statement gives room for optimism.

    It said the UAE will "encourage the investment institutions of UAE to raise their investments in India, including through the establishment of UAE-India Infrastructure Investment Fund, with the aim of reaching a target of $75 billion to support investment in India's plans for rapid expansion of next generation infrastructure".

    The importance laid on the visit by the hosts was clear when Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan arrived with all his five brothers to receive Modi at the airport. An additional gesture was grant of land for a Hindu temple in Abu Dhabi.

    We will only be able to get a better relationship if UAE is able to get big economic benefits from India ...

    We need to get the UAE into Make In India ... We might also be able to get UAE and others into our Maldives policy.

    and

    Once UAE sees it is not a one way road and they are thought to be of value ...

    When you say Asia, I hope you mean the western part of it. Or have you forgotten India, China and Vietnam?
    And even in the middle east, have you forgotten Iran and Saddam Hussein's Iraq.

    There is thin line between a terrorist and an international hegemon and that line should stay there.
    United States of America is not a terrorist nation.

    I believe India and UAE should create a strong partnership seeing as UAE plans to be an intellectual hub, later in the century and has the capability to do so. The oil concerns should be secondary.

    Russian slavery? Boy, you are deluded. What recent action of india speaks of russian slavery to you? You surely require some lesson in contemporary history of India.

    And, you sitting in Australia gonna do it?

    You have been fed too much of western propaganda where you cannot see that India stands on its own, and chooses sides based on its own perception and interest. For your kind of people anything that doesn't suit your western masters, is anti-west or anti-USA. Pathetic!

    Check the most recent RFI for MBT.
    And more than happy if you teach any lesson in contemporary history of India.


    Why not? I am not allowed..!

    Sir, I talk about India only. From where the hell you find western propaganda in it.....?
    I hate communist, communist slaves and communist countries. Is that anything wrong in it....!
    If you think there must be any western propaganda in it, then god help you.
    And well come to wonderland.

    most of western part of it has also oil... :)
    usa dont really have a interest on india because are no resources to take it. they know they have better weapons than india so right now they dont speak about it. try one day to say something bad about the rich people from usa and their dark affairs in this world. then you`ll see that the tone of voice of america is changing. did you ever asked yourself why in india nobody speak about capitalism? not about democracy but about capitalism? how bad is it? that because usa has given the order to sclaves from indian politics not to talk about. try to speak about all those things that usa did from the start of usa back in 1877 till today. you`ll see

    Why only "some" bro, you can get heaps of "arguments".
    Just check one post prior to yours.
    You got the most appropriate guy to ask about USA.
    Mad Indian love to provide proof about "USA is better".

    one post prior...okay
    lets talk then about what zebra said. when he speak about hating communists we consider that he from somewhere learned about communism. so he knows that communism means no one have own fortune and everyone share capital with others. so...what is wrong in this? maibe the dictatorial thing is not quite nice but it comes to regulate the human spirit that must be somehow ...under someone`s control. ofcourse that open posibility to abuse from someone who pretend that can regulate all but he just abuse. but that is another story. let`s speak about share ...why the communism share thing is bad?
