India Supports UN Resolution Urging Israel To Withdraw From Golan Heights

New York: The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) has passed a resolution urging Israel to withdraw from the occupied Golan Heights. India, alongside 90 other nations, voted in favour of this resolution.

The UNGA resolution reinforces the demand for Israel’s withdrawal from the entirety of the occupied Syrian Golan to the June 4, 1967 line, aligning with relevant Security Council resolutions. The Golan Heights was seized by Israel from Syria during the 1967 war.

On the opposing side, eight nations – Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States, Palau, Micronesia, Israel, Canada, and the Marshall Islands – voted against it. Additionally, 62 countries, including Ukraine, France, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, Japan, Kenya, Poland, Austria, and Spain, chose to abstain from voting.

This significant decision transpired during the voting session held on Tuesday, November 28. The international community’s varied stance on the matter highlights the complexity and geopolitical implications surrounding the Israel-Syria territorial issue.
