Nasser Hussain Ansari, who runs the Indian Hospice in Jerusalem, is among the Indians who has come to the presidential compound to greet the Prime Minister. India's ambassador to the UAE Navdeep Singh Suri said that Modi will attend a painting exhibition by Ramesh Shukla. That's why I am here. This region is a key priority in our external engagement.

Mr. Modi is welcomed by President Abbas at the presidential palace after a wreath-laying ceremony. He will address the Indian community there on Sunday.

He will also meet Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and some select CEOs of companies from Gulf countries. He was accompanied by his Palestinian counterpart Rami Hamdallah.

"This will be the first-ever Prime Ministerial visit to Palestine from India", PM Modi said in a statement.

It is in this backdrop that the governing council of the Congress Party met yesterday in New Delhi under the leadership of party's former president Sonia Gandhi.
