"Deepening historically close & friendly ties. Mr. Mahmoud Abbas, President of Palestine receives ceremonial honours at @RashtrapatiBhvn," Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Gopal Baglay tweeted.
This is President Abbas' fifth visit and third state visit to India.
India and Palestine enjoy historical friendly ties.
Apart from extending the political support to the Palestinian cause, India continues to support developmental projects in Palestine by extending technical and financial assistance.
The visit will provide an opportunity for reviewing the entire gamut of bilateral relations, the Middle East Peace Process, regional and international issues.
