What's in it for Modi to visit Palestine?

After the rally at Siphijala, Modi would go to Kailashahar in Unakoti district, Bhattacharya said, adding the prime minister would address a public meet at Ramkrishna Mahavidyalaya stadium in the second half of the day.

" I am looking forward to my discussions with President Mahmoud Abbas and reaffirming our support for the Palestinian people and the development of Palestine", he said.

"A number of initiatives taken during his earlier visit to the UAE in August 2015 and during the visit of Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed previous year when he was the Chief Guest at India's Republic Day celebrations have come to fruition".

"He (prime minister) will not benefit from this".

Khaleej Times reported that in February 2016, during Al Nahyan's visit to New Delhi, India and the UAE signed agreements on cyber security, infrastructure investment and insurance. During Modi's earlier visit to the UAE in August 2015, the hosts had promised to invest $75 billion in India.

"The Presidency announced that President Abbas and his guest, Prime Minister of India, will hold a session of important talks, which will address the latest developments in the political process in the region because of the weight of India's global weight".

"The initial momentum to elevate the bilateral relations came from the comprehensive strategic partnership, signed a year ago by Al Nahyan and Modi", she wrote, adding that Indian ambassador to the UAE Navdeep Singh Suri, praising India's relationship with the Gulf nation, used the golden era.

BJP leader Vinay Sahasrabuddhe said that laughing at the prime minister's speech was an "indecent behavior" which hit the dignity of Parliament.

"The UAE is home to over three million people of Indian origin". He was referring to the UAE investments in low-priced housing. Like successive Indian governments, Modi is also delicately balancing ties with Israel as well as Palestine and the Arab world. The navy and air force of the two countries hold regular exercises and the Indian Navy has berthing rights in Muscat and uses Oman's portfor anti-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden.
