Indian national flag not displayed at Burj Khalifa on Independence Day
NEW DELHI - Indian national flag was not displayed on Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, on its Independence Day “due to a major technical hitch”, *Khaleej Times* reported on Thursday.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) iconic tower is famous to showcase national flags of its friendly countries on important occasions to exhibit alliance and association.
“We have just learned from our friends in Emaar that on account of a major technical snag they won’t be able to light up Burj Khalifa with the Indian tricolour tonight,” Navdeep Singh Suri, the Indian ambassador to the UAE, said.
“A bit of a disappointment for friends who were expecting this,” he added.
