India urges Israel ,Palestine to coexists

While receiving Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged that the future sovereign state of Palestine must co-exists with Israel and looked forward to an early solution to the Palestinian problem. However, Abbas remarked that the pre-1967 borders and East Jerusalem are inevitable conditions of a future Palestine. He also termed the issue of Jewish settlements in Palestinian territories is of grave concern.

He acknowledged India s support and contributions to the Palestinian cause and India s desire to find a permanent solution. Mr. Abbas thanked India for its support in the information technology sector by way of providing capacity building initiatives in Palestine.

According to Prime Minister Modi, peaceful political process by way of early resumption of talks between both the sides will alone succeed in finding a comprehensive and permanent solution to the problem.

Israel and Palestine are at loggerheads over the claims on East Jerusalem, which houses holy sites of both Muslims and Jews. Palestine had repeatedly demanded that the future Palestine should be based on the map before the Six Day War of 1967 in which Israel captured East Jerusalem along with Gaza Strip, West Bank and Sinai peninsula of Egypt.

The visit of Mr. Mahmoud Abbas is of special significance as the Indian Prime Minister is likely to travel to Israel in June, which would be the first ever visit by an Indian PM after establishing diplomatic ties with Israel in 1992.
