Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Rony Yedidia-Clein, the In-Charge of Affairs at Embassy of Israel in India, has expressed happiness that during Israel’s conflict with Hamas, Indians supported them. “We are in conversation with our Indian counterpart,” she said on Friday.
Rony was interacting with Indian media virtually on Friday morning. Replying to a query, she expressed her views on India’s support to Palestine in United Nations Security Council (UNSC).
“We have had conservation with Indian counterpart. We have understanding with them. In United Nations General Assembly, India condemned Hamas attack on Israel. We see it as a good sign. We are always in conversation with Indian friends. India and Israel have a long standing relationship,” Rony said.
On Friday morning, Israel and Hamas have agreed to a cease-fire after more than 10 days of fighting, officials on both sides said.
