PM conferred 'Grand Collar of the State of Palestine'

Feb 10:In a first by an Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi made a state visit to Palestine where he was received by Palestine President Mahmoud Abbas and was accorded a ceremonial guard of honour at Al-Muqata'a, compound of the presidential headquarters in Palestine's Ramallah. Modi's first engagement after arriving in Ramallah was the wreath laying ceremony at the Mausoleum of Late President Yasser Arafat. PM Modi is scheduled for a bilateral meeting with President Abbas after which they will issue a joint press statement.
A number of agreements are likely to be inked between the two sides during PM Modi's three-hour visit to Palestine under which India will provide funding for a number of projects in the fields of health, education, culture and women's empowerment.
PM Modi on Friday arrived in Jordan on the first leg of his tour of three West Asian countries, including Palestine, during which he would hold talks on deepening cooperation in strategic areas such as security and trade.
PM Modi's visit to Palestine comes a month after India hosted Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Agencies
