While speaking at a Town hall in Bhopal on October 28 Jaishankar said, "Today, a good government and strong governance stand up for its people. Just as good governance is necessary at home, right judgements are necessary abroad. We take a strong position on terrorism because we are big victims of terrorism.

He added, "We will have no credibility if we say that when terrorism impacts us, it's very serious; when it happens to somebody else, it's not serious. We need to have a consistent position."  

India had restrained from a UN resolution that did not condemn Hamas terror attacks. The Jordanian resolution called for an "immediate, durable and sustained humanitarian truce" between Israeli forces and Hamas terrorists in Gaza from which India abstained from voting. However, India favoured the Canadian resolution which condemned the terrorist attacks by Hamas.

This resolution was adopted during the UN General Assembly's emergency special session addressing the Israel-Palestine crisis. The UNGA additionally called for "continuous, sufficient and unhindered" delivery of life-saving aid and services to civilians within the enclave.
