Prime Minister Narendra Modi continued his ‘selfie diplomacy’ as he visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand mosque on Sunday.

Clad in a cream-coloured kurta with an orange and white stole, Mr. Modi posed for a selfie, flashing a smile. The Prime Minister tweeted: "With HH Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan & HE Dr. Anwar Gargash at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. #Selfie"

“Memorable moments recorded for posterity. PM @narendramodi takes a selfie & writes about the visit in the Guest Book,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.

During his May visit to China, he clicked one with his Chinese counterpart Li Keqiang. In April, he had clicked a selfie with Indian students who gathered around him during his visit to the French Space Agency.

Last year, during his trip to Australia, Mr. Modi posted a selfie with his “friend” and Australian counterpart Tony Abbott.
