India again abstains in Israel-related UN vote

For the third time in three months India opted to abstain rather than vote against Israel on a UN vote Monday dealing with Middle East issues.

On the same day that the UN Security Council unanimously approved the Iran deal, The UN’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) approved the accreditation of the London-based Palestine Return Center, an organization Israel maintains is linked to Hamas.

India abstained in a vote last month in a smaller UN body that accredits NGOs, but when that body approved the move, Israel put forward a resolution in the 54-member ECOSOC against the move.
