NEW DELHI: India on Friday reiterated that there was no change in its policy of “traditional support” for Palestinian cause, while having strong relations with Israel.

“I can state that there is no change in our policy of extending strong support to the Palestinian cause while maintaining good relations with Israel,” Ministry of External Affairs  spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said here on Friday.

He said that the government’s stance had been conveyed not just in Parliament, but also in Prime Minister’s message to the United Nations (UN) on the occasion of the International Day for Solidarity with Palestinian People.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi told the United Nations that India backed a negotiated solution, resulting in a sovereign, independent, viable and united state of Palestine with East Jerusalem as its capital, living within secure and recognised borders, side by side and at peace with Israel.
