A MoU in this regard was signed during the visit of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to New Delhi in 2012.

"We are extremely grateful to India for the kind contribution. New Delhi's generosity is going to greatly help quell overcrowding at schools in Nablus and Abu Dis area," Director General of PA's Education Ministry Fawaz Mujahed said.

"India has always been at the forefront of providing required educational support to the Palestinian youth and hundreds of our youngsters have benefited in acquiring technical knowhow through various Government of India schemes," Mujahed said.

"We also greatly value the unflinching political support we receive from India," he emphasised.

The representative of India to PA, BS Mubarak presented the cheque to Mujahed.
