New Delhi: Prime Minister Modi could not understand what UAE crown prince said yesterday in Joint Press Conference.
Short speech of Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan was in Arabic. The translator-on-duty held up in traffic jam yesterday and hence could not reach the spot on time.
In the beginning of his speech, Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed, India’s Republic Day guest greeted with formal greeting, ‘Assalamu alaikum’. After the greeting, there was silence in the room as the Crown Prince continued his speech for about three minutes in Arabic.
However, written translation of his speech was made available to press reporters. The press conference was held in Hyderabad House yesterday.
