Modi to be first Indian PM to visit Palestine

Modi to be first Indian PM to visit Palestine

Addressing a meeting of the Party's Parliamentary meeting in the library building in the morning, Mr Modi said after assuming office in 2014, the government has taken several steps to increase the pace of economic progress of the country and performed in a consistent manner for the poor and the ryots. "And the possible role India can play in enhancing peace in the region, as well as discussing different economical aspects beyond the existing ties we already possess", President Abbas said.

In response to media queries about the Prime Minister's travel to Ramallah in Palestine for the first ever visit by an Indian Prime Minister there, the Official Spokesperson of MEA, Raveesh Kumar said, "The Prime Minister will travel to Palestine via Amman". PM Modi had visited Israel previous year in July in a standalone visit that had led to many analysts questioning the future of the Indo-Palestine ties.

The Cheddar Man rolls out a surprise
Cheddar Gorge is indeed the birthplace of cheddar cheese, but despite his name and his origins, Cheddar Man could not eat cheese. The face of the man, who died more than 10,000 years ago, was reconstructed using DNA taken from bone powder in his inner ear.


The visit to Jordan, Palestine, Oman and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is being described to be having strategic importance in terms of energy and security cooperation and counter-terrorism efforts.

"India has recognised the State of Palestine in 1988, and we can not forget the last Indian vote in favour of Palestine's rights in Jerusalem in the United Nations General Assembly, and all the political stands that India has taken to support the Palestinian rights in the global arena", President Abbas said referring to India's vote at the UN.

Modi will then visit UAE and will hold talks with His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.

This will be Modi's fourth meeting with Palestine President Mahmoud Abbas.

Per Sky Sports News , the associate said: "He doesn't understand why Leicester have behaved in the way they have". I don't condone a player walking out on a club, especially when there's no chance of a move for four months.


The fourth aspect, according to Bhaskar, is India's continuous support to the Palestinian cause at various global fora. "In both Oman and the UAE, I will have the opportunity to meet the large Indian diasporas that have made those countries their home". The city in the West Bank, which hosts the Palestinian Authority's presidential headquarters, also serves as its de facto capital. Modi's visit to Palestine comes less than a month after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's India trip. This was followed by the visit of President Abbas to New Delhi in May 2017. "They are also looking at ports, logistic centres and food parks".
