INDIA'S SUPPORT FOR TWO-STATE SOLUTION AT THE UNITED NATIONS



India’s Statement at the UN:

On May 2, 2024, India's Permanent Representative to the United Nations reaffirmed India's commitment to a Two-State solution for Israel and Palestine. The representative emphasized that India supports the establishment of an independent Palestinian state within secure borders while considering Israel's security needs.

Condemnation and Humanitarian Aid:

India condemned the October 7, 2023, attack on Israel by Hamas and stressed the importance of respecting international laws. India also called for the unconditional release of Israeli hostages in Gaza. On the humanitarian front, India highlighted its ongoing support for Palestinians, urging an increase in humanitarian aid to Gaza to prevent further deterioration of the situation.

UN Security Council Veto:

India expressed hope for the reconsideration of Palestine's UN membership application, which was blocked by a US veto on April 18, 2024. The resolution did not pass as it requires at least nine favorable votes from the Security Council members and no veto from the permanent members (China, France, Russia, the UK, and the US).

Historical Context:

India's support for Palestine is rooted in its foreign policy history. In 1947, India voted against the partition of Palestine. In 1974, it became the first non-Arab state to recognize the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) as the legitimate representative of the Palestinian people. India recognized Palestine's statehood in 1988 and opened a Representative Office in Gaza in 1996, later moving it to Ramallah in 2003.

Key Developments and Projects:

India has consistently supported Palestine in various international fora, including co-sponsoring resolutions and voting against actions detrimental to Palestinians. As of May 2023, India is involved in eight developmental projects in Palestine, such as building educational and healthcare facilities and supporting women empowerment centers.

Conclusion:

India’s long-standing support for the Palestinian cause is evident in its diplomatic efforts and developmental aid, reaffirming its commitment to a peaceful resolution through a Two-State solution.
