The Government of India has contributed $10 million as budgetary support to the Palestinian National Authority.

The Government of India has contributed $10 million as budgetary support to the Palestinian National Authority. The grant is in fulfillment to the commitment made by H.E. Prime Minister of India Dr. Manmohan Singh during the visit of H.E. President Mahmoud Abbas to New Delhi earlier this year.

The contribution comes within the frame of India's financial assistance to the Palestinian National Authority and other humanitarian assistance efforts for the well-being of the Palestinian people.  In March 2009, India has also contributed a sum of US $10 million as budgetary support to PNA, and has completed the construction of the Palestinian Embassy building and residences in New Delhi as a gift to the Palestinian people..  In addition to the above, the Government of India, along with its IBSA partner-countries, has been contributing towards construction of an indoor sports complex in Ramallah, increased its contribution to UNRWA, and has also raised its annual training slots  under its ITEC training program from 40 to 100 for Palestinians.

India's support to Palestine and its just cause is not new or unknown. India has always supported the Palestinian people in realizing their legitimate aspirations for a sovereign, independent and viable State of Palestine, existing side-by-side in peace with the State of Israel. To that end, India has underlined its support for the Arab Peace Initiative and the Quartet Road Map and has repeatedly called for the implementation of relevant resolutions of the United Nations Security Council.

India shall continue to do all within its capacities to assist Palestine in its endeavors in capacity and institution-building.
