Kenny Thornton | 18 May, 2017, 20:00

Modi also affirmed a great relationship between India and the PA."I am delighted to welcome back President Mahmoud Abbas, an old friend of India, on his state visit to India", Modi said.

Modi referred to India's support for a Palestinian state from the 1940s and insisted New Delhi's position had not changed, after an hour of talks with visiting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas here today. Ahead of Abbas' visit, India reiterated its "political support" to the Palestinian cause and had said that it continued to assist developmental projects there.

On May 16, along with meeting with Modi, he will also visit President Pranab Mukherjee at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, and meet Vice President Hamid Ansari and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.

Earlier, around 70 countries had reaffirmed that only a two-state solution could resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Reuters had reported. And as we stated in a recent press release, if Trump takes serious action to pursue a viable Israeli-Palestinian peace deal, APN will leverage its influence and experience to support him.

The Prime Minister said the five agreements signed following Tuesday's talks "are reaffirmation of our intent to strengthen cooperation in this direction".

We pushed Labour on this and they told us the commitment they are making is to have debt falling "as a percentage of (trend) GDP". Labour, however, promises to "end cuts to local authority budgets to support the provision of libraries, museums and galleries".

Trump is scheduled to arrive in Israel on May 22, when he will meet with President Reuven Rivlin and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

In a written statement, Michael Lynk, the United Nations special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian Territory under occupation, requested better and accessible health care, unrestrained family visits, and an end to solitary confinement and administrative detention for Palestinian hunger strikers. "The peaceful coexistence of Palestine and Israel is an essential condition for ensuring genuine security and stability in this region".

Condemning terrorism by ISIS, Abbas said ending the "Israeli occupation" will greatly help in countering terrorism in the region.

On his part, Abbas expressed his appreciation for India's continued support and solidarity for the Palestinian cause on worldwide forums. It has influence at the worldwide level. "Once completed, it will serve as an IT hub offering a one-stop solution for all IT-related training and services in Palestine", Modi said. After his talks with Abbas, Modi said, "both sides, through practical cooperation, will work together to build Palestine's economy and contribute to improving the lives of its people".

Modi said the India is looking froward to enhance cultural exchanges by adding new elements including yoga.
