New Delhi: India today batted for a two-state solution to the decades old Israel-Palestine conflict. India’s stand comes as US President Donald Trump tweets maps of Israel and Palestine under his ambitious Middle East plan.
Spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs, Raveesh Kumar said, We reiterate our view that final status issues should be resolved through direct negotiations between the two parties and be acceptable to both.”
He added, “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. We will continue to follow developments in the region and engage with the parties concerned.”
Trump had shared maps with West Bank containing 15 Israeli enclave communities connected through a tunnel in Gaza Strip.
He tweeted his support for the State of Israel and the Jewish people. And also pledged his support for their safety and security.
In the map he showed the State of Palestine has a capital in parts of East Jerusalem.
The Middle East plan took three years to develop that places Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
