New Delhi:

India on Wednesday reiterated its stand of 'two-state solution' to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. India’s reaction came after US president Donald Trump unveiled his middle-east peace plan on Tuesday. Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said India has been consistently supportive of the Palestinian cause and has called for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian issue. “We urge the parties to engage with each other, including on the recent proposals put forward by the United States, and find an acceptable two-State solution for peaceful coexistence. We will continue to follow developments in the region and engage with the parties concerned”, Kumar said. 

President Donald Trump on Tuesday released his long delayed Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, promising “a new dawn,” but angry Palestinians called it biased and deserving to go in the “dustbin of history.”

Standing alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the White House’s East Room, Trump said that his plan could succeed where decades of previous US attempts to intervene had failed.

“Together we can bring about a... new dawn in the Middle East,” Trump said to an enthusiastic audience that included throngs of Israeli and Jewish American guests—but apparently no Palestinian representatives.

Trump praised Israel for taking “a giant step toward peace” with the plan, which lays out a vision for future Palestinian statehood if a series of strict conditions are met.
