The Myanmar Times - - World -

Is­rael apol­o­gised after a deputy min­is­ter said an earth­quake in Italy was pun­ish­ment for a UNESCO res­o­lu­tion on east Jerusalem that has an­gered the Jewish state. Ayub Kara, deputy min­is­ter of re­gional co­op­er­a­tion, said dur­ing a visit to the Vat­i­can last week he was sure the quake that hit cen­tral Italy the same day hap­pened be­cause of the res­o­lu­tion, which Is­rael has said de­nies the Jewish con­nec­tion to the city. “We re­pu­di­ate the re­marks of deputy min­is­ter Kara,” a for­eign min­istry spokesper­son said.
