India will support Palestine as the 194th member of the UN General Assembly, Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai announced Saturday according to the Indian Tribune News Service.

The foreign secretary noted that India was the first-non Arab state to recognize Palestine in 1988.

India is a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, and so its vote could carry weight for the Palestinian Authority, which has said it would petition both the Security Council and General Assembly.
