Indian PM Modi Arrives Palestine, Lays Wreath At Yasser Arafat's Mausoleum

12 February 2018

Modi made the first trip to Israel by an Indian prime minister past year followed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to India last month.

"I have assured President Abbas that India is committed to the Palestinian people's interests", Modi said in a joint press conference with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

During the bilateral meeting with PM Modi, Sultan Qaboos appreciated the contribution of honest and hard working Indian nationals in the development of Oman, MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.

The spokesman said Mr Moon also called for a quick resumption of dialogue between the United States and North Korea. Kim Yo Jong is the sister of North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un and is a key advisor to her brother.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be laying the foundation stone of the first Hindu temple in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.

The trip follows Modi's visit to Israel last summer, where he opted not to make a detour to the West Bank as part of New Delhi's efforts to "de-hyphenate" its relations with Israel and the Palestinians.

In 2015, then President Pranab Mukherjee had flown to Tel Aviv in Israel and traveled by road to Ramallah. He underlined India's support for a sovereign and independent Palestine and hoped for return of peace in the region.

Mr Coomber said it was the damaging winds causing the worst of the problems, with trees and branches knowing down powerlines. Between 20 and 40 millimetres fell across the region, with Brisbane receiving as little as 15 millimetres.

In both Oman and the UAE, Modi is expected to meet the Indian diaspora which he said "is a bridge of friendship between India and the Gulf countries". He also expressed honest thanks to Jordan for logistical support extended for smooth facilitation for his Palestine visit.

Addressing the Indian community at Muscat, the Prime Minister emphasized on Centre's "Ease of Living" policy, and said, "We are working with the mantra of "Minimum Government, Maximum Governance" towards making lives of common people easy". I passed by Salalah, stayed there for some time, met some people and today I again got the opportunity to meet them. The occasion also marks the opening of the first Hindu temple in Abu Dhabi, which will be livestreamed at the Opera House. Modi arrived in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, yesterday and held wide-ranging talks with the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi as the two sides signed five agreements, including a historic pact awarding a consortium of Indian oil companies a 10 per cent stake in offshore oil concession.

The prime minister further said that India's image had suffered due to a long list of scams in the previous regime and his government worked hard to change the "style of misgovernance".
