"We discussed regional and global developments that have a role in peace in the world and in the region", Modi said in Ramallah, where he appeared alongside Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. The UAE and India are expected to sign various agreements and a memoranda of understanding, reported Gulf News.
Modi flew to Ramallah from Jordan by helicopter Saturday and laid a wreath at the grave of Abbas predecessor Yasser Arafat, located in Abbas' walled government compound.
"We never have and never will reject negotiations", said Abbas.
"We believe in the importance of a possible Indian role to reach a final agreement based on global consensus and resolutions, in which India and other countries can be part of", Abbas said, PTI reported.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas wants India to play role in talks with Israel. The Palestinians have criticized Trump's shift on Jerusalem as a sign of blatant pro-Israel bias by Washington. "Had a wonderful meeting with His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan". However, senior sources in Israel said on condition of anonymity that India had sounded them off about it long time back, much ahead of Netanyahu's visit to Delhi.
Modi became the first Indian prime minister ever to visit Israel in July past year, with the two states signing deals on cyber security and energy.
He also acknowledged that the Indian leadership has always stood by peace in Palestine.
Modi expressed hope that an independent and sovereign Palestinian state would be established as soon as possible. "Only diplomacy and farsightedness can break the cycle of violence and free it from the baggage of the past", Modi said. "We know that it's not easy, but we should keep striving because a lot is at stake", he said in a joint press conference with Abbas. Trump's pivot upset Palestinians who seek the city's Israeli-annexed eastern sector as a capital.

Abbas again denied that he was refusing to return to the negotiating table with Israel, saying he was prepared to do so on the basis of a multilateral mechanism where several countries would sponsor the peace talks.
The announcement regarding Modi's visit to Ramallah took many by surprise given the growing bonhomie around the India-Israel ties. This relationship extends beyond the usual buyer-seller ties, said Modi.
