On his part, Modi stated Abbas' visit to India reflects close Palestinian-Indian relationship on the bases of mutual cooperation and understanding.

Abbas, who touched down in India on Sunday, first visited the technology institute outside Delhi is where India is lending its IT know-how to help Palestine spur job creation in the tech sector.

He added while Palestine is working on building its institutions, it finds India on the forefront in reconstruction of the country. India will reportedly keep extending its support and cooperation in the infrastructural development of Palestine and contribute towards the improvement of life conditions.

The PM also hoped that large number of Palestinians will participate in global day of yoga next month.
