Hyderabad: Palestine is ready to establish a progressive relationship with Israel if it agrees to peacefully co-exist with Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine, Palestinian Ambassador to India Adli Shaban Hasan Sadeq said on Sunday.
"Israel must end its criminal warfare. Palestine is ready to establish a progressive relationship with Israel if it agrees for peaceful coexistence with Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine," he said in a statement issued here by the Indo-Arab League Hyderabad at a press conference here.

He and League of Arab States Mission In-Charge Mazim Al-Masoudi sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi`s intervention to take up the issue with US President Barack Obama during his scheduled visit to America, the release quoted him as saying.

Mazin Al-Masoudi asked the Indian government to take a "good position" on the Palestinian cause, while "lauding efforts of Indian politicians who favourably took up the issue of Palestine in the Parliament of India", the release said.
