Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, right hugs Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi after decorating him with the Grand Collar of the State of Palestine medal, during his visit to the Palestinian Authority headquarters in the West Bank city of Ramallah, Saturday.

Modi told Abbas that "support for the Palestinian cause has been one of the mainstays of our foreign policy" and that he hopes a Palestinian state will be established through peaceful means.

This is Modi's second visit to the UAE and is indicative of the new momentum in the UAE-India ties and the bolstering of cooperation between the two countries in areas like defence, finance, investments, anti-terrorism, space technology, infrastructure and skills development. New Delhi voted in the UN General Assembly in December a year ago against US President Donald Trump's unilateral recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"India and Jordan enjoy friendly ties since diplomatic relations were established in 1950", MEA's official Twitter handle said.

"I have assured President Abbas that India is committed to the Palestinian people's interests".

Abbas expressed hope that India, which he described as a "world power that has a big status and weight", would contribute to achieving peace between the Palestinians and Israel. And Modi has openly embraced their growing strategic partnership, hosting the Israeli prime minister in New Delhi three weeks ago after making a high-profile visit to Tel Aviv last July.

After bilateral talks, the two sides signed six agreements worth around $50 million, including one for setting up a $30 million super speciality hospital in Beit Sahur.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to arrive in the UAE on Saturday evening. Some important agreements are also likely to be signed during the visit aimed to strengthen the bonds of friendship between both the nation. The Palestinians see East Jerusalem as their future capital. It was conferred as a mark of recognition of Modi's contribution to the relationship between India and Palestine.

B Bala Bhaskar, a joint secretary in the Ministry of External Affairs, said India has "de-hyphenated" its relations with Palestine and Israel.

"Here we count on India, with its status as a great power, its historical role in the non-aligned movement and in global forums.to achieve a just peace", Abbas said. India recently voted for a resolution that criticised US's decision to move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. "India and Palestine's historic relations have stood the test of time".
