RAMALLAH, February 7, 2018 (WAFA - Official PLO news agency) – 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.
