Jerusalem status: There was time India stood for something, Omar on Centre’s response

 Reacting sharply to the Centre’s response to US recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday said there was a time when the Trump administration move would have provoked a strong condemnation from India.

“There was a time when the Trump Administration move to overturn decades of US policy WRT #Jersualem would have provoked a strong condemnation from India,” Mr Abdullah, who is the working president of National Conference, wrote on micro-blogging site twitter.

He said now all you get is some washy drivel about India’s position determined by ”our self-interest and not what other countries do”.

“There was a time India stood for something,” he added.

Mr Abdullah was responding to President Trump recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, reversing nearly seven decades of American foreign policy.
