PM Modi discusses trade, defence cooperation with his UAE counterpart Al Maktoum

PM Modi to meet Palestine president Mahmoud Abbas today

Later on Sunday, the Prime Minister will deliver the keynote address of the Sixth World Government Summit, in which India is the guest of honour country this year.

The Prime Minister other high-level engagements include a bilateral meeting with UAE Vice-President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and other UAE government officials.

Earlier on Saturday, he visited Palestine in what was the first ever prime ministerial visit from India there.

The three newspapers said that Israel admitted that an F16 fighter jet that was involved in an air raid on Syria was shot down by Syrian artillery.

India is also collaborating to set up an Institute of Diplomacy in Ramallah.

In December a year ago, US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a controversial decision which angered the Palestinians, sparked protests in the Middle East and raised concern that it could further destabilise the already volatile region. The stadium was, however, not packed to capacity despite the Indian mission in Muscat writing to companies employing Indians to allow their blue-collared workers some time off to attend the event and provide them transport facilities to the venue.

Al-Quds said Israeli authorities embarked on the construction of a bypass road linking the illegal settlements of Ramat Shlomo and Atarot in occupied Jerusalem. "India will always support Palestine's development journey", Modi said, adding that India is hopeful of peace and stability in the region.

Modi is visiting the United Arab Emirates for the second time after his 2015 trip to the Gulf country.

PM Modi further said that Indians are now on a path to building a new India, and that it is reflected in the massive change the work culture has undergone.
