Read this article , keep Musharraf's speech in mind , and everything should become clear :

"India rejects Arab conditions for UNSC seat

25 August 2005: At a meeting in Amman, Jordan, two weeks ago, Arab envoys told the Indian special envoy, C.R.Gharekhan, that Arab states would support India's permanent representation in the UN Security Council if it broke off relations with Israel, but this was flatly turned down.

Top sources said that foreign minister Natwar Singh has been angered by the conditionalities imposed by countries willing to support Indian's UNSC bid, and the Arab decision has irked him further, although that did not stop the Indian envoy from stating that India related to the Arab states and Israel on different planes, and one was not and could not be at the cost of the other.

Foreign office officials said that Arab diplomats raised the issue in the context of resettling Palestinians in the Gaza Strip vacated by Israel, in which India has offered to assist with construction.

The Arab diplomats pointed to the large number of Israeli delegations visiting India, and Gharekhan clarified that they were not all of political or military nature, but also related to agriculture, investments, and so on, and pointed out that the window provided for Arab investments in India ran dry.

The Arabs said that together with terminating relations with Israel publicly, they expected India to involve in the Middle East peace process and raise regional concerns in the UN in return for support for Security Council membership, but this was unacceptable."
