Reacting to the US announcement recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, India on Thursday 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 on Wednesday recognised Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, reversing decades of the US and international policy on the holy city. With PTI
