Israel hopeful of better ties with India
New Delhi: Israel is hopeful that India’s vote against it at the UN with regard to Gaza will not impact bilateral ties particularly in the areas of defence and security.
Theese views were expressed by the new Israeli ambassador to India, Daniel Carmon. The Indian vote against Israel came at the UNHRC with regard to a resolution seeking to launch a probe into Israel’s offensive on Gaza. In the 47-member council, 29 countries voted in support of the resolution while 17 nations abstained.
The US was the only nation to vote against the resolution. The European Union-bloc also abstained.
The Israeli envoy also said that Israel was in touch with the India at various levels “before, during and after the voting” on the UN resolution.
He remarked, “I don't like the resolution. For many years what is going on in the UN is very much politicised. We did not like the result of international community,” he said.
