BJP and IPFT supporters on their way to PM Modi’s rally in Sonamura Tripura

This will be Prime Minister Modi's second visit to the UAE and the first to Oman.

"We are receiving Prime Minister Modi in a historic visit that will demonstrate the strong ties and relations between the Palestinian people and the brotherly Indian people", the Palestine President said.

In both Oman and the UAE, I will have the opportunity to meet the large Indian diasporas that have made those countries their home.

The presidency said President Mahmoud Abbas will welcome Modi at the presidential headquarters in Ramallah, where the two will discuss issues of mutual interest and the latest political developments in the region. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reciprocated the gesture by visiting India in January this year. Modi made the first trip to Israel by an Indian prime minister past year followed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to India last month.

Modi is expected to arrive in Amman Friday afternoon and meet Jordan King Abdullah II.

Mridul Kumar, Joint Secretary (Gulf), said Modi will hold talks with the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Commander of the UAE Armed Forces Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, following which several agreements will be signed.

"There will be interactions with leading UAE and Arab CEOs in Dubai on the vast economic opportunities in India and what more can be done together to increase business collaboration", Modi tweeted.

Oman is a close maritime neighbour with whom we enjoy excellent relations.

While India's ties with the Gulf have been fostered by previous governments too, Mr Modi has paid particular attention to the region, and this was seen as part of efforts to redefine ties. Modi will also visit the grand Sultan Qaboos Mosque and a very old Shiva temple.

They also accused Prime Minister of supporting their dividing politics. More than 9 million Indians work and live in the Gulf region, of which about one third live in the UAE alone.
