Clashes erupt as Palestinians mark Nakba, several wounded

White House reels from another Russia crisis

Pitching for peace in West Asia, India on Tuesday urged that a future state of Palestine should coexist peacefully with Israel.

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. "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.

In a joint press conference with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi, Abbas said that a solution to ending the conflict is embodied in establishing a two-state solution based on the 1967 borders.

Abbas also pitched for an agreement with India on religious tourism as Palestine has several religious shrines.

These remarks by Modi come at a time when he is going to embark on a visit to Israel in July.

The families also requested a meeting with President Trump, so he can hear the stories of "victims of decades-long Palestinian terror and violence".

Prime Minister Modi said both India and Palestine have agreed to work together through practical cooperation on building Palestine's economy and contribute to improving the lives of its people.


Mfeketo ended her remarks by quoting former president Nelson Mandela: "We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinian people".

"So, achieving justice is the basis for the success in fighting terrorism being practiced by terrorist groups such as ISIS and other extremist groups in the region", he added.

The PA chief said that the oppression of the Palestinians started 100 years ago, when the "fake Zionist narrative, which denied our existence on our land, began".

In an exclusive interview with The Hindu, President Abbas on Monday had called for global backing for the peace efforts and asked for India's involvement.

The Palestinian president arrived here on Sunday on a four-day visit. "We, like the Palestinians today, embarked on hunger strikes in from our prison cells in protest against Apartheid South Africa's human rights violations", Mfeketo said.

The Prime Minister did not give a direct endorsement of the U.S. president when asked if she had full confidence in him, instead focusing on the relationship between the two countries.
