Ties between the US and the PA hit a nadir following US President Donald Trump's December 6 declaration that the US would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, with Abbas declaring the US could no longer serve as an "honest broker" in peace talks.

Modi said that India was proud to help the Palestinians build state institutions and support their budget and projects.

PM Modi thanked Palestine for giving him this Grand Collar of the State and stated this as an honour for all Indians and a symbol of Palestine's friendship. The prime minister's visit will begin from Palestine on Feb 10 after transiting through Jordan, where he will meet King Abdullah II.

The two countries signed four agreements worth 41 million USA dollars in various sectors, including education, health, media and women economic empowerment. The Prime Minister has a packed travel plan this weekend with visits to the UAE and Oman, before he returns home on Monday.

The agreements include building a hospital in Beit Sahour, near Bethlehem, at the cost of $29 million and the construction of an India Palestine Center for empowering women at a cost $5 million. He asked to facilitate the peace process with "We rely on India's role as an voice of great standing and weigh through its historical role in the and in all forum and its increasingly growing power on the strategic and economic levels, in a way that is conducive to just and desired peace in our region", Abbas.

Saying that Palestinians were ready to engage in dialogue, Abbas said he was counting on India's support for negotiations between Israel and Palestine. This time Modi skipped in a clear message that is de-hyphenating its ties with and Palestine. The Palestinians see east as their future capital. In December, India backed a United Nations resolution that opposed the USA decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
