Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday said there was a time when the Trump administration move would have provoked a strong condemnation from India.

He took to Twitter to express his views while reacting to Government of India’s response to US move of recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

“There was a time when the Trump Administration move to overturn decades of US policy WRT #Jersualem would have provoked a strong condemnation from India,” Omar wrote on micro-blogging website Twitter.

Omar, who is the working president of National Conference, said now all you get is some washy drivel about India’s position determined by ”our self-interest and not what other countries do”.

“There was a time India stood for something,” he added.

India has so far declined to comment on the US move to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, saying its position on Palestine "is independent and consistent".
