New Delhi, June 8: President of Maldives Ibrahim Mohamed Solih on Saturday conferred upon  Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi the country’s highest honour accorded to foreign dignitaries– ‘The Most Honourable Order of the Distinguished Rule of Nishan Izzuddeen’.

The prestigious award was presented to Modi by President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih during a ceremony in Male.

PM Modi is on a two-day state visit to the Maldives, making it his first bilateral trip after his re-election for a second term.

“The Most Honourable Order of the Distinguished Rule of Nishan Izzuddeen” is the Maldives’ highest honour accorded to foreign dignitaries, Foreign Minister Abdulla Shahid said on Twitter.

Modi arrived in the Maldives on his first foreign visit after re-election as Prime Minister to strengthen the bilateral ties, reflecting the importance India attaches to its ‘Neighbourhood First’ policy.
