The Communist Party of India-Marxist said it strongly condemned the decision of US President Donald Trump, who has said the American embassy will shift to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.
"This action goes against the UN's and the international community's stand that East Jerusalem is an occupied territory by Israel since 1967. An independent Palestinian State with East Jerusalem as its capital is the internationally accepted position," a CPI-M statement said.
The CPI-M said that unlike the worldwide opposition to this move, the Indian External Affairs Ministry "has scrupulously refused to criticize the US decision. This shows the extent of servility of the Modi regime to the US".
