Abbas to ask Indian PM for support in replacing US mediation

A senior official says Mahmoud Abbas will ask India's visiting prime minister to support a multi-country sponsorship that would replace the United States as the sole mediator in future negotiations.

ASSOCIATED PRESS--- Narendra Modi flew by helicopter from Jordan to Ramallah on Saturday for his first-ever visit to an autonomous Palestinian enclave in the occupied West Bank.

Palestinian official Nabil Shaath says Modi is to hold talks with Abbas and sign cooperation agreements worth about $50 million.

Abbas has sought European and Arab support for replacing the U.S. as the sole Mideast mediator, after President Donald Trump recognized contested Jerusalem Al-Quds as Israel's capital. Abbas has so far failed to win such commitments.
