Reacting to Government of India’s response to US recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday said there was a time when the Trump administration move would have provoked a strong condemnation from the country.
“There was a time when the Trump Administration move to overturn decades of US policy WRT #Jersualem would have provoked a strong condemnation from India,” Abdullah, who is the working president of National Conference, wrote on micro-blogging site twitter.
He said now all you get is some washy drivel about India’s position determined by ”our self-interest and not what other countries do”.
“There was a time India stood for something,” he added.
Abdullah was responding to President Trump recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, reversing nearly seven decades of American foreign policy.
