His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed al Nahyan said the former External Affairs Minister's death is a "profound loss" for both countries.

He said Swaraj was an effective stateswoman and cherished partner to the UAE.

Sheikh Abdullah also said her record of compassionate diplomacy represents a legacy by which she will be remembered for generations to come.

The Indian diplomat died on Tuesday in New Delhi after suffering a cardiac arrest.
