Indian PM delays visit to Dubai

The Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh will not visit the UAE later this month as planned.

“We took stock of the situation and decided that we need to make the visit more substantive,” the Indian ambassador M K Lokesh said. “We need to come up with many agreements on cooperation, bilateral investment promotion and protection and other things.

“We are in the process of formulating these. It is better if the prime minister comes when these are in place.”

Mr Singh had been expected in Abu Dhabi at the end of the month before heading to South Africa for the Brics summit. A
new date for the visit has not been set.
