UNGA Resolution: Abdullah welcomes India’s ‘principled stand’ on Palestine

Srinagar: National Conference President and Member of Parliament, Dr. Farooq Abdullah on Friday welcomed the passage of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolution opposing the declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by the United States.

“I thank all countries that voted to support the resolution. The move to declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by the United States was an arbitrary, unjust and baseless move that defied history and tenets of justice.

India, by voting in support of the resolution along with other countries, has upheld its considered and principled stand on Palestine”, the NC President said in a statement issued from National Conference Headquarters ‘Nawa-e-Subha’ on Friday.

Abdullsh added, “India has traditionally and consistently considered East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine and India’s support to the UNGA resolution re-affirms that stand and commitment”.
