UAE-INDIA-DIPLOMACY

UAE-INDIA-DIPLOMACY

It was the first visit of an Indian prime minister to Ramallah in 30 years.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday assured Palestine President Mahmoud Abbas that India was bound to take care of the interests of Palestinian people.

Making a veiled attack at the Opposition, Modi said, "We have to bring India at a par with the rest of the world".

The Indian leader said his country "hopes for peace and stability in this region". "For the future of mankind, we do not have to struggle against nature but find a symbiotic path with it", he added.

His visit to Palestine comes amid heightened tensions in the region after US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

In a powerful message before a global audience, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday cautioned the world against mankind fashioning tools of destruction through technology and misuse of cyberspace for radicalisation.

Prince Nahyan valued the continued efforts by India to enhance economic growth, and the recent economic reforms undertaken by India which would facilitate the ease of doing business and promote market integration.

"We missed the industrial revolution, but we joined the digital revolution", he said.

Modi also is set to visit Oman and the United Arab Emirates.

Modi said poverty and malnutrition have not been wiped out from the world but still a large chunk of resources were being diverted towards augmenting missiles and other weapon technologies.

"The Indian Government and its people have provided significant assistance and aid to the Palestinian people by establishing training centres, schools, and the necessary humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people under occupation in the West Bank and", Abbas noted. The royal family of Oman too shares a special relation with India.

Modi laid a wreath before the Memorial - monument made up of 31 massive aluminium panels leaning on one another to symbolise solidarity between the people and the leadership of the UAE.

India's refusal to back U.S. moves to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital disappointed the Jewish state but was consistent with its support for the Palestinians. Visiting the museum dedicated to him has also been an unforgettable experience for me.

During this visit I got the opportunity to pay my tributes at the tomb of Abu Omar.

India and the UAE will hold a bilateral naval exercise, the External Affairs Ministry announced on Sunday.

Modi said that India was proud to help the Palestinians build state institutions and support their budget and projects.
