Palestine President Abbas confers Grand Collar on PM Narendra Modi
The Grand Collar is highest order given to foreign dignitaries - Kings, Heads of State and persons of similar rank.

It’s a historic visit for more than one reason. The first visit by any Indian Prime Minister to Palestine is turning into a moment of great pride for a nation of 1.3 billion. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the first Indian to receive the `Grand Collar of the State of Palestine`, the highest Palestinian honour for foreign Heads of states or Royalty. The award is given for statesmanship and quality amply displayed by PM Modi.

The commendation reads "In recognition of his wise leadership and his lofty national and international stature, and in appreciation of his efforts to promote the historic relations between the State of Palestine and the Republic of India; in acknowledgement of his support to our people`s right to independence and freedom so that peace prevails in the region." President Abbas described the award as a reflection of Palestine`s respect for Prime Minister Narendra Modi`s vision towards establishing peace and stability in the region and the world.
