India Demands Security Council Action on Status of Jerusalem

India called today for United Nations action to enforce Security Council resolutions barring Israeli annexation of the eastern parts of Jerusalem. The Indian position was voiced in a statement holding Israel responsible for the El Aksa fire made by Foreign Minister Dinesh Singh.

He told the Indian Parliament that “the continued occupation of Jerusalem by Israel in defiance of the resolutions of the United Nations, is a matter of grave concern. The shocking incident makes it imperative that the Security Council’s resolutions on Jerusalem should be implemented without delay. In this country, Israel cannot be absolved of responsibility for this outrage.”
