India hopes to see Palestine becomes sovereign soon: PM

Modi Travels to West Asia, Will Make Historic Prime Ministerial Visit to Palestine

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas during the joint press meet, at Ramallah, in Palestine on Saturday.

Abbas, who was speaking during a joint press conference with visiting Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi, said the Palestinians seek a two-state solution "based on the 1967 borders and global resolution (pertaining to the Israeli Arab conflict)". India will also provide young Palestinians with vocational training.

PM Modi spent around three hours on this visit that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, has described as "significant". He will interact with the Indian community at an event at the Dubai Opera.

"The relations between India and Palestine have stood the test of time", he said. So then why isn't Nehru the first Indian PM to visit Palestine?

Modi's visit to the Palestinian territories is viewed as an attempt to balance Indian foreign policy in the Middle East.

Abbas said "we count on India's role, as a world power with significant weight and status to contribute to achieving just and aspired peace in our region, due to its impact on world security and stability".

The Prime Minister thanked the Crown Prince for the special gesture of receiving him at the airport and said his visit will have a positive impact on India-UAE ties.

Since U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December, Abbas has been seeking global support for countries from Europe and the Middle East to be included as mediators between Palestine and Israel - efforts that the U.S. has led. UAE is one the few countries which have been visited twice by the PM in his first term and says a lot about the importance of relations between India and UAE. Soon after his arrival, Modi visited the Mausoleum of in and laid a wreath at the grave of the iconic Palestinian leader.

The UAE granted the temple project after India conveyed the demand of its nationals for a place of worship during Modi's 2015 visit to the country.

The investment from the UAE to India exceeds Dollars 11 billion.

Modi's West Bank visit was seen, in part, as an attempt to compensate the Palestinians after he hosted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for six days last month, in a reflection of warming ties between Israel and India.

Late on Saturday, Modi arrived in Abu Dhabi on a two-day official visit during which he will hold talks with top leadership of the Gulf nation and witness signing of almost a dozen agreements to bolster political and economic ties.
