Addressing the conflict in the West Asia region, PM Modi highlighted India’s commitment to dialogue and diplomacy, citing the nation’s exercise of restraint. He strongly condemned the civilian casualties resulting from the Israel-Hamas conflict and disclosed India’s provision of humanitarian aid to Palestinians following discussions with President Mahmoud Abbas.

PM Modi’s call for unity in the Global South coincided with India’s recent vote in favor of a United Nations resolution condemning settlement activities in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and in the occupied Syrian Golan. The resolution received support from 145 nations, with India aligning itself with the majority. Notably, seven countries, including Canada and Israel, voted against the resolution, while 18 abstained.

Providing context to India’s stance, PM Modi referenced the country’s previous abstention from a UN General Assembly vote in October. India chose not to support a resolution by Jordan advocating for an immediate humanitarian truce in the Israel-Hamas conflict.

The decision was based on the resolution’s omission of any mention of the terrorist group involved. Titled ‘Protection of civilians and upholding legal and humanitarian obligations,’ the resolution passed with 120 nations in favor, 14 against, and 45 abstentions.

India remains steadfast in its endorsement of a two-state solution for Israel and Palestine. Additionally, the country continues to emphasize the protection of civilians affected by the crossfire between Israel and Hamas.
