Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, arrived in Abu Dhabi on Saturday on a two-day state visit to the UAE. Palestinian President Rami Mahmoud Abbas described Modi's visit as "significant". "India will always support Palestine's development journey", Modi said, adding that India is hopeful of peace and stability in the region.
Since U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December, Abbas has been seeking worldwide support for countries from Europe and the Middle East to be included as mediators between Palestine and Israel - efforts that the U.S. has led. President Mahmoud Abbas said Palestine was relying on India's great standing on the global stage to facilitate the peace process with Israel.
Abbas expressed hope that India, which he described as a "world power that has a big status and weight", would contribute to achieving peace between the Palestinians and Israel.
She congratulated him on being honoured with the highest award.
The light show will coincide with prime minister Modi's second state visit to the UAE.
Prior to this visit, Modi said that he has "de-hyphenated" relations with Palestine and Israel, establishing "mutually independent and exclusive relations with both partners". An agreement signing ceremony is also expected at the banquet.

"We rely on India's role as an worldwide voice of great standing and weigh through its historical role in the Non-Aligned Movement and in all global forum and its increasingly growing power on the strategic and economic levels, in a way that is conducive to just and desired peace in our region", he added. In December, India backed a United Nations resolution that opposed the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "India and Palestine's historic relations have stood the test of time".
