PM Narendra Modi, Palestine President Mahmoud Abbas hold talks

PM Narendra Modi, Palestine President Mahmoud Abbas hold talks

For the Palestinians, the right to return to homes they fled or were forced to leave is a prerequisite for any peace agreement with Israel, but it is a demand that Israel has rejected.

Last week, Vladimir Putin met with his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas in Sochi, who once again stated that it is impossible to solve the Palestinian issue without Russia's meaningful participation. We, like the Palestinians, were detained. "Sushma Swaraj calls on President Mahmoud Abbas", Baglay said.

South Africa's Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies completed the symbolic hunger strike saying, " This is a very small gesture of solidarity with those courageous freedom fighters of Palestine struggling for the very same rights many of us now take for granted in South Africa, but which were in fact won through the same spirit of selfless commitment". "India has played this role (by supporting the Palestinian cause) and we are looking forward that India continues to play the same role", he said while delivering a lecture in New Delhi. At the same time he mentioned his meeting with US President Donald Trump at the White House.

His appointment comes a week before Trump is due to visit Israel on May 22 and 23, with the USA president seeking ways to restart the moribund peace process.

The Palestinian Liberation Organization's (PLO) new ambassador to the United States, Dr. Husam Zomlot, says he wants peace in the Middle East and believes a two-state solution is the only way to end the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. They want a state based on 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as their capital, something Netanyahu has resisted.

The visit of the Palestinian President comes ahead of Modi's visit to Israel which is likely to take place in July.

In the letter, the families dubbed the payments "incitement that motivates Palestinian youth to murder Israelis", and urged the visiting President to stop the PA's "immoral policy... before any talks can commence".

Erekat was referring to the day's commemorations by Palestinian communities for the "Nakba", for "catastrophe" of the founding of Israel and the dispersion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their homes. "This enables us to help moderate Arab governments protect themselves". Its final status has not been agreed on by the worldwide community, which views it as a core issue in the conflict with the Palestinians.
