Press Release on India-Israel relations

August 25, 1999
New Delhi

Government's attention has been drawn to media reports about the statement made by Deputy Secretary General of the Arab League Mohammed Zakaria on nuclear cooperation between India and Israel.

We would like to emphasize that while we have good relations with Israel, there is no nuclear cooperation between the two countries.

India's relations with the Arab world are historic, and are based on close people-to-people contacts, and cooperation in the political and economic fields. Support to the Arab and Palestinian causes continues unchanged. India's relations with Israel will never be pursued at the cost of our multi-faceted relations with the Arab countries.
