India has called for the historic status quo at the holy places of Jerusalem to be upheld. Speaking in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) open debate on the West Asia , India's Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations, R Ravindra expressed grave concern over recent acts of terror and incidents of violence in the West Bank.

The statement comes amid rising tensions over clashes between Israeli police and Palestinian worshippers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East Jerusalem. Mr. Ravindra strongly condemned such acts which have resulted in an escalation in violence. Extending India's full support to the steps leading to the cessation of violence, Mr. Ravindra said that ongoing incidents underscore the need for resumption of talks between Israel and Palestine. He added that there is no alternative to a negotiated two-state solution.
