India has reaffirmed its call for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and asked both sides to resolve all issues through direct negotiations, news agency PTI reported.
According to the report India’s reiteration of its views on the issue came a day after US President Donald Trump unveiled his Middle East peace plan.
Ministry of external affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said India has been consistently supportive of the Palestinian cause and has called for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian issue.
“We reiterate our view that the final status issues should be resolved through direct negotiations between the two parties and be acceptable to both. We urge the parties to engage with each other, including on the recent proposals put forward by the United States, and find an acceptable two-state solution for peaceful coexistence,” Kumar said in response to response to a question on the Israel-Palestine issue.
“We will continue to follow developments in the region and engage with the parties concerned,” he said.
