Stating that there are four dimensions to the visit to Palestine, Bhaskar said that this will be first ever prime ministerial visit from India to that country. Modi said he was looking forward to discussions with Palestine President Mahmoud Abbas and reaffirmed Indi's support for the people of Palestine.

Modi, who lands in Jordan Friday, is likely to have a meeting with the King of Jordan Abdullah II.

Mr Javadekar said students from across the country will interact with the PM and also through video conferencing.

However, Modi's visit to Ramallah comes at a time when the U.S. has taken a stance to recognise the disputed territory of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel unilaterally while India chose to vote in favour of the UN General Assembly resolution opposing the move made by Washington.

India in December 2017 voted at the United Nations General Assembly in favour of a resolution asking the United States to withdraw President Donald Trump's recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Historically, India has in fact offered consistent political support for Palestinians, particularly in the days of Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, which is unsurprising given the shared struggles with British colonialism.

India opposed the establishment of Israel in 1947, and India's close relations with several Arab nations and its Muslim population - the second largest in the world - long made the government wary of openly acknowledging relations with the Jewish state.

Trump and Modi also addressed the situation of more than 680,000 Muslim Rohingya who have fled Buddhist-majority Burma to neighboring Bangladesh since previous year.

The office of Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, said it considered the visit of Mr Modi - a "grand guest" - as a "historical and significant" event. Modi is scheduled to start his visit to the Middle East countries from today till February 12. "So far, India has undertaken projects worth 30 million US dollars in Palestine", said Giri.
