Position on Palestine not determined by any third country: India


New Delhi, Dec 7 (PTI): Reacting to the US' announcement recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital, India today said its position on Palestine is independent, consistent and not determined by any third country.

External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said India's position on Palestine is shaped by its own views and interests and not determined by any third country.

"India's position on Palestine is independent and consistent. It is shaped by our views and interests, and not determined by any third country," he said responding to a query regarding India's position on recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by the US.

President Donald Trump had yesterday recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital, reversing decades of US and international policy on the holy city.

    One one hand India thinks it can be a superpower one day and on the other hand it refuses to take a stand on any international issues. Sitting on the fence won't make us a superpower.

    USA has already recognized yesterday, Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and ordered US embassy to move there from Tel Aviv, without asking any country's opinion. Looks like lion doesn't lose the sleep over the opinions of the sheep.

    we can bet on Israel anytime, about palestine though not so sure.
    palestine didnt give any statements during any of the terrorists acts on India, But Israel always supported India.
    Modi was the first PM who visited Israel without going to palestine.

    Jerusalem is a holy city to both the christians and the Jews.

    We have nothing to do with Mecca and Madina and cropped and famed during the Islamisation period of 1400 years or prior to First Century.

    All nations were aware of only an OKAZ festival where all the religious people were worshipping Idols and few idols including a cube stone is still existed in Mecca.


    Acts of Apostles 19:35

    And when the townclerk had appeased the people, he said, Ye men of Ephesus, what man is there that knoweth not how that the city of the Ephesians is a worshipper of the great goddess Diana, and of the image which fell down from Jupiter?

    Modi will not go against America.
    Due to all developments in neighbouring countries, India needs support from USA in shaping future straregies, melitary wise in economic zone.
    He is the only PM of India, who visited Israel, post Indepence with out any hesitation of being a target for Arab countries criticism.

    This message depicts the real face of Italy bhakths!
    You take pride in degrading your own country just because your 'vatican controlled' rule was ended by Modi. Shame on such grate-less souls who cherish their life here , enjoy all the goodies and spit on the same plate from which they had food!!
