Why no out­rage at U.S. de­ci­sion, asks CPI(M)

The Hindu - - NEWS - Spe­cial Cor­re­spon­dent

The CPI(M) on Thurs­day ques­tioned the stance of the Modi’s gov­ern­ment, as op­posed to the world­wide out­rage, on U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s de­ci­sion to recog­nise Jerusalem as the cap­i­tal of Is­rael.

The CPI(M) polit­buro said in a state­ment that the U.S. had taken a for­mal step to le­galise the il­le­gal oc­cu­pa­tion of Pales­tine ter­ri­to­ries by Is­rael. “This ac­tion goes against the United Na­tions’ and the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity’s stand that East Jerusalem is an oc­cu­pied ter­ri­tory .... ”

Un­like the world­wide re­ac­tion, the of­fi­cial spokesman of the Min­istry of Ex­ter­nal Af­fairs had re­fused to crit­i­cise the U.S. de­ci­sion, the polit­buro said. “This shows the ex­tent of ser­vil­ity of the Modi regime to the United States.”
