CPI Opposes Israel-UAE Agreement
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement today (on August 20, 2020) opposing Israel-UAE Agreement:
The Communist Party of India expresses its concern on the development in Middle East which creates possibilities of further escalations of conflicts. The latest understanding between Israel and United Arab Emirates is a part of Trump-Netanyahu “Deal of the Century” aimed at absolute control of all Palestine land.
Already many Arab countries have expressed their opposition on such understanding of UAE with Israel and marked it as a great betrayal to the Palestinian cause.
The CPI is not against better understanding of good neighbourliness but when it comes under the US notorious strategic plan of “Greater Middle East” and goes against the Palestinian cause creating more conflicts among the Arab countries then it has to be opposed.
The CPI believes that the government of India’s stand on this issue is not in tune with the country’s stated position. This has exposed the willingness of the BJP-led NDA government to be part of US-Israeli axis which goes against the Palestinian cause.
The CPI reiterates its support to the formation of an independent sovereign state of Palestine with 1967 borders and East Jerusalem as its capital.
