Narendra Modi to visit Palestine in February
India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi will make a historic visit to Palestine in early February, media reports said. It is the first time an Indian prime minister will visit the Palestinian territories, writes NDTV. Modi will also visit Oman and UAE during the four-day visit which will start from February 9. During his Palestine visit, Modi will hold a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who had visited India in May last year. During the meeting, Modi assured Abbas that Palestine has India's "unwavering" support for their cause. Modi's visit comes less than a month after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s six-day trip to India. During Netanyahu’s visit, the two leaders discussed the Palestine issue.
