New Delhi: India's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ruchira Kamboj, has advocated for the resumption of direct negotiations towards establishing a sovereign, independent, and viable state of Palestine living peacefully alongside Israel.
Kamboj, welcoming the international efforts to ensure further de-escalation of the conflict, also affirmed that India opposes terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and is clearly against violence.
“India welcomes all efforts by the international community that strive towards a de-escalation of the conflict and enables the delivery of urgent humanitarian assistance to the people of Palestine,” Kamboj said.
Kamboj highlighted that India has already delivered 70 tonnes of disaster relief materials, including medicines and medical supplies, to the people of Palestine.
Israel announced war against Hamas after it launched attack on Israel on October 7 and killed about 1,200 people, mostly civilians, with around 240 people taken hostage, according to media reports quoting Israeli officials.
