    Narendra Modi has wrapped up the first official visit by an Indian prime minister to the Palestinian territories.

    Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas told Modi that he needs New Delhi's support during future talks with Israel.

    Abbas's government is seeking new allies after US President Donald Trump caused an uproar by recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
