Within week, India restates support for Palestinians, docks warship at Haifa to stress Israel ties

India displayed its Mideast juggling this week as the country’s foreign minister said in Egypt Tuesday that India continued to support the Palestinian cause, just days after an Indian naval warship docked at Haifa in what New Delhi said was a sign of the “robust” ties between the two states.

Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj, during a trip to Egypt on Tuesday, said that “our strong traditional support to the Palestinian cause remains unwavering even as we pursue good relations with Israel.”

At a speech to the Egyptian Council for Foreign Relations, Swaraj was quoted in the Indian Express as saying that India has “strong interests in the Arab world and have been strongly committed to its various causes. We have been supportive of your aspirations regarding the resolution of the Palestine-Israel issue.”
