Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad, the Prime Minister of Bahrain, arrived on an official visit to the UAE on Tuesday.

He was met at the Presidential Airport by Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, state news agency Wam reported.

Bahrain's Crown Prince was then afforded an official reception ceremony at Qasr Al Watan in Abu Dhabi.

Sheikh Mohamed said it was a pleasure to welcome the Crown Prince to his "second home".
