PM Modi extends India's "Unwavering support to Palestinian Cause"

PM Modi extends Indias Unwavering support to Palestinian Cause

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that India's ties with people of Palestine are rooted in the common history of both the nations.

On the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people, Modi reiterated India's "unwavering support to the Palestinian cause".

November 29 has been annually observed as the day for solidarity with Palestine since 1977.

PM Modi also said in the statement that India "always supported the Palestine people in their pursuit of economic and social development with dignity and self-reliance."

Touching upon the contentious border issues between Palestine and Israel, Modi hoped that the direct talks between both the nations would continue for a "comprehensive and negotiated solution".

Modi extended "best wishes" to the people of Palestine to achieve statehood, peace and prosperity, reports say.

In October this year, India presented a cheque of USD 2.5 million to a UN agency working to benefit schools and health care for Palestinian refugees, according to NDTV.

In addition, since 2018 India has shelled out USD 22.5 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).

In 1974, India was the first non-Arab nation to recognise the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO).

India still continues to be among the few countries that recognize the Palestine State.

As part of strengthening ties with Palestine, in 1996 India opened a Representative Office in Gaza, which in 2003 was shifted to Ramallah.
