Saturday, February 10, was held the previously planned visit of the Prime Minister of India Narendra modi to the Palestinian authority. It was the first visit of the head of the Indian government in the Palestinian authority, in Ramallah, which was of great significance.
The head of the government of India arrived in Ramallah by helicopter from Amman, where he conducted negotiations with the Jordanian leadership.
The Palestinian media reported that modi has promised the head of the Palestinian authority Mahmoud Abbas his support in the implementation of steps aimed at peaceful settlement of the conflict with Israel.
«India hopes that Palestine will soon come to independence in a peaceful way», – said N. Modi.
Abbas, in turn, called India a «great power» and expressed the hope that India, not the United States, will play a crucial role in resolving the middle East conflict.
Recall that in July last year, Narendra modi had visited Israel (then in PA he didn’t go), and in January 2018 for the five days he took in India the head of the Israeli government of Benjamin Netanyahu.
