In a media statement before his visit to Israel, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that “India has been unwavering in its support for the Palestinian cause.”
During talks with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Modi said that India hopes to see an independent, sovereign, united, and viable Palestine, existing peacefully with Israel. Additionally, Prime Minister Modi also stated that India hopes for a resumption of talks between Israel and Palestine to resolve the Palestinian issue.
PM Modi is set to visit Israel in July this year. His visit will mark the 25th anniversary of diplomatic ties between India and Israel. Modi’s renewed support for Palestinian independence further reinforces India’s continued support for Palestinian statehood while still maintaining strong relations with Israel.
