India Calls Killings In Rafah ‘Heartbreaking’, Reaffirms Palestinian Statehood Amid European Moves

India on Thursday reaffirmed its long-standing position on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict following the recent recognition of Palestine by Ireland, Norway, and Spain.

Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal highlighted India's historical support for Palestinian statehood and a two-state solution.

When asked about the coordinated decision by Spain, Ireland, and Norway to formally recognise Palestine, Jaiswal, at a weekly press briefing, said, “As you are aware, India was one of the first countries to recognise the state of Palestine in the late 1980s, and we have long supported a two-state solution which entails the establishment of a sovereign, viable, and independent state of Palestine within recognised and mutually agreed borders, living side by side with Israel in peace.” #IndiaOnRafah #HeartbreakingKillings #RafahIncident #PalestinianStatehood #MEAStatement #IndiaSupportsPalestine #EuropeanMoves #MiddleEastConflict #DiplomaticResponse #HumanRights #InternationalAffairs #PeaceInMiddleEast #GlobalSolidarity #RafahTragedy #PalestineIsraelConflict ~HT.99~PR.152~ED.155~
