India Endorses, Pakistan Rejects Middle-East Peace Plan Between Israel & Palestine

Published

on

Both India and Pakistan have responded differently to the Middle-East peace plan between Israel and Palestine which was unveiled by US President Donald Trump.

Iran Calls Donald Trumps ‘Deal of The Century’ As ‘ Treason of The Century’

Donald Trump’s “deal of the century” supports Israel and recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s “undivided” capital. The plan envisages a Palestinian state and the recognition of Israeli sovereignty over West Bank settlements. Palestine will be allowed to have a restricted state with limited sovereignty, but only after the nation fulfils several conditions.

The ‘peace plan’, which had been in the pipeline since Trump took over, was announced by US President alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has dismissed the deal as “unworthy of consideration” while Iran ha called it the treason of the century.

India has said that the solution to the Israeli-Palestinian issue has to be “acceptable to both” sides, even as it urged both to actively engage with the US’s proposals. In its official response, India urged that the final status should be “resolved through direct negotiations between the two Parties and be acceptable to both”.

However, India urged that both sides should also consider the US proposal as part of various other solutions that would necessitate “direct negotiations”. “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,” said MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar.

Pakistan, on the other hand, said it consistently supported a two-state solution in line with the relevant Security Council and General Assembly resolutions. Although the Foreign Office did not explicitly say it, the discreetly worded statement meant that Islamabad did not endorse the ‘peace plan.’
