“and then you win”

United Nations, October 01, 2011

India came out in all out support for a Palestinian bid for membership of the United Nations as a Security Council committee met behind closed doors to begin considering its application. Underscoring New Delhi’s support of the Palestinians’ bid, India’s Permanent Representative Hardeep Singh Puri on Friday recalled that his country was the first non-Arab state to grant recognition of a Palestinian state when it did so in 1988.

“We look forward to welcoming Palestine as an equal member of the United Nations.”
