SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today termed the Centre’s stand on US recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital a “wishy-washy drivel”.
He said that such a move in the past would have drawn strong condemnation from India.
“There was a time when the Trump Administration move to over turn decades of US policy WRT #Jersualem would have provoked a strong condemnation from India,” he said.
“Now all you get is some wishy washy drivel about India’s position determined by our self interest & not what other countries do. There was a time India stood for something,” he wrote on Twitter.
President Donald Trump had yesterday recognised Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, reversing decades of US and international policy on the holy city.
