No change in our policy on Palestine, says India

Israeli security forces brace for Palestinian ‘Day of Rage

India on Thursday refrained from reiterating its long-held view that eastern part of the holy city of Jerusalem should be the capital of Palestine even as it declined to toe the USA line to recognise the holy city s the capital of Israel.

Even as the political situation in the middle-east is getting more volatile after the United States recognised Jerusalem as Israel's Capital, Palestinian Ambassador in New Delhi Adnan Abu Alhaijaa reportedly told a TV channel that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Palestine but did not elaborate when the visit will take place.

The government's position came in for sharp criticism from the CPM. "It is shaped by our views and interests, and not determined by any third country", External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.

"India supports all efforts to find an acceptable solution to all the pending issues including Jerusalem".

However, India is not alone being in fix on the issue as the USA became the first country to recognize Israeli sovereignty over entire Jerusalem even when the global community does not approve of it yet. The statement however did not specifically address the issue of Jerusalem as the USA -recognised capital of Israel.

Over the past few months, India has been studiously avoiding mention of East Jerusalem in Palestine-related statements. rime Minister Narendra Modi did not refer to East Jerusalem during his high-on-optics Israel visit this summer.

"They are doing that", he said, "but the Israeli bureaucracy creates enormous obstacles to Arabs becoming citizens, even if they live in Jerusalem".

In fact, India's ties with the Arab World gained in strength simultaneously with Israel during the last two decades, pointed out of the people quoted above.

The party demanded that the "Modi government should come out strongly, disapproving of the U.S. action, as it goes against India's long-standing commitment to the Palestinian cause". The Arab world will obviously keep a close eye on the visit. PM Modi had skipped Palestine during his visit to Israel in July.
