What is India’s position on the Israeli-Palestinian dispute?
In December of last year, India made its position on Israel-Palestine clear. In this regard, India welcomed the decision to restore coordination between the Palestinian authorities and Israel. India had called on the leaders of both sides to take this opportunity and directly renegotiate on the goal of a two-nation solution. India has stated that it fully supports the settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian dispute through a peaceful settlement through direct negotiations.

What is the meaning of the two-nation solution
The two-country solution has been a priority for decades in efforts to bring peace to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As part of this solution, an independent Palestinian nation will be established out of Israel – two nations for two people. In principle, giving Palestine nation status would gain Israel’s security and approval to retain a Jewish demographic majority (allowing the country to remain Jewish and democratic). Most governments and world bodies, including the United Nations, have decided to achieve a two-nation solution as government policy. This goal has been the basis of peace negotiations for decades.
