The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid a visit to Palestine on February 10th, 2018. Modi is the first Indian Prime Minister to visit the country. This visit comes at a crucial time, with Trump having already bugled Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and declaring his resolve, Modi is being seen as the peace negotiator between the two. Earlier this year, Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu visited India. Modi visited Israel last July, New Delhi having seemingly developed influential chemistry with Israel.

 

Modi reached Ramallah on Saturday in a chopper provided by the Jordanian government. ‘’India and Palestine have stood the test of time. Our incessant and steadfast support to the Palestinian cause has always been on top of our foreign policy,’’ said Narendra Modi, in an official press release in Ramallah on Sunday. Though Modi refrained from speaking on Jerusalem directly, it is evident that India will play a significant part in the negotiations between Israel and Palestine. Modi also visited Jordan on Friday where he discussed the peace process with King Abdullah II. If Modi is successful in arranging a settlement between the two countries, he will stamp his position as the world leader.

 

Narendra Modi is on a three-nation west Asia tour where he is visiting Palestine, UAE and Oman.
