Presidency welcomes historical visit of India’s prime minister


RAMALLAH, February 7, 2018 (WAFA) – The presidency Wednesday welcomed the upcoming "historical and significant" visit of the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is expected to arrive in Ramallah on Saturday.

The visit is considered historical, because it will be the first for an Indian Prime Minister to visit Palestine.

The presidency said President Mahmoud Abbas will welcome Modi at the presidential headquarters in Ramallah, where the two will discuss issues of mutual interest and the latest political developments in the region.

Topics such as bilateral relations between the two countries and the regional issues of relevance will be on the agenda.

The presidency said the visit will be a unique chance to express appreciation for India’s ongoing support and positions that support peace and Palestinians’ right to freedom and independence.

Bilateral agreements will be signed to strengthen the friendship between the Palestinian and Indian people and cooperation in important fields, it added. 

The two leaders are expected to appear in a joint press conference.
