A delegation of 83 members including delegates from UAE’s space agency will accompany Al-Nahyan for a meeting scheduled on September 2-3, according to Economic Times.

The space cooperation will add yet another area for bilateral cooperation between the countries. India and UAE already have a close partnership in security and economic issues.

Further, India’s assistance in Mars mission is likely to be more cost-effective to UAE than taking assistance from European countries.

Both countries are likely to discuss and explore new areas for cooperation including defense production, infrastructure, energy, security, counter-terrorism, small and medium enterprise, health, environment etc., according to ET report.

TikTok remained unavailable for download on both Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store on Thursday – a day after the Madras High Court’s Madurai Bench lifted the ban on the short video-sharing app.

Sources in the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology said that official communication to the technology companies would be made after it receives the court directive.

The IT ministry had earlier asked Google and Apple to block the app following the Supreme Court’s refusal to stay the Madras HC’s call for ban on the app on April 3.

Deciding the case filed by advocate Muthukumar, the Madurai Bench on Wednesday vacated its interim order banning the app, subject to conditions that pornographic videos will not be uploaded on it, failing which contempt of court proceedings would begin.

Owned by Chinese company ByteDance, TikTok claims to have over 120 million monthly active users in India.

A search for the app on Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store on Thursday did not yield any result.

While Google and Apple refused to share any official statement, the companies would be able to reinstate the app only when they receive an official directive revoking the ban.
