This will be the fourth meeting between Modi and Abbas after those on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in 2015, at the Paris climate summit later that year and at the Palestinian President's visit to India last year.

In Amman, PM Modi met King Abdullah II and Prime Minister of Jordan.

Israeli authorities control all entrance and exit points to the West Bank including its 150 km border with Jordan and the airspace above.

Noting that Oman was a close maritime neighbour with whom India enjoys excellent relations, Modi had said ahead of his visit, "I shall also interact with leading businesspersons of Oman on developing stronger economic and business links with India".

New Delhi has long backed the Palestinian territories' quest for nationhood and Modi has voiced support for an independent state existing peacefully alongside Israel. "I have assured President Abbas that India is committed to the Palestinian people's interests", Modi said, as quoted by the PA's official media outlet Wafa.

In Ramallah, PM Modi paid tribute to the last Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat.

India and Palestine on Saturday signed six Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) s worth United States dollars 40 million.

After brief government shutdown, parties agree to spending bill
As Senator Paul pointed out, the 650-page spending plan was only made public on Wednesday night, so many details remain unclear. The debt limit would be suspended through March 2019, putting the next vote on it safely past this year's midterm elections.

Coast residents lose power in freak storm
The severe weather also caused delays to train services on the Gold Coast and Beenleigh lines, but they later returned to normal. Although wind gusts reached speeds of 111km/hr in Moreton Bay, the storm cell only provided a small amount of much-needed rain.

In both Oman and the UAE, Modi is expected to meet the Indian diaspora which he said "is a bridge of friendship between India and the Gulf countries".

While briefing reporters on the planned highlights of Modi s visit tomorrow, Kumar recalled the history of the martyrs memorial, which houses 31 commemorative panels that signify the solidarity between the UAE s people and leadership.

Modi also didn't mention East Jerusalem as Palestine's capital during his speech.

India and the UAE have agreed to start joint development projects for third countries, including in the war-torn Afghanistan, according to a joint statement issued today after Prime Minister Narendra Modi concluded his second visit to the oil-rich country.

The temple, which will be built in stone, will come up off the Dubai-Abu Dhabi highway over 55,000 square meters of land.

In UAE, PM Modi will have bilateral talks with His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, on Saturday evening, followed by a signing ceremony of agreements and MoUs and a banquet hosted by Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed in honour of Modi. "India hopes that soon Palestine will become a free country in a peaceful manner".

PM Narendra Modi, who is now on a three-nation tour, addressed the Indian diaspora at Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex in Muscat, Oman on Sunday.
