Arab League Concerned over India’s Military, Security Cooperation with Israel
The Arab League has expressed its “deep concern” over the military and security cooperation between India and Israel, reported the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) on Wednesday.
It said that a memorandum, sent recently to the Indian government, noted that the existing cooperation between India and Israel could “create tensions in the Middle East.”
The Arab League cautioned India to take into consideration its existing commercial interests with Arab countries, which will “reconsider” their relations with India if its military and security cooperation continues with the Jewish state, according to the memorandum, cited by SPA.
India and Israel established full diplomatic relations in January 1992.
A similar Arab League warning to India was sent last year in protest of visits to Tel Aviv of the Indian Home Minister Lal Krishan Advani and the Foreign Minister Jaswant Singh in June.
