Palestinians To Submit U.N. Security Council Resolution, Official Says

1

abbasThe Palestinian Authority (PA) is looking to submit a resolution to the United Nations Security Council by the end of November, calling for an end date of “Israel’s occupation” in the West Bank, a senior Palestinian official said today.

The threat of a PA resolution comes amid a stall in the U.S.-led effort to foster peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

“No other solution [to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict] has been proposed by the United States,” Wassel Abu Yusef, a senior official in the Palestine Liberation Organization, told AFP.

According to Saeb Erekat, a senior PA negotiator, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry recently informed him that the U.S. would veto any Security Council resolutions.

“I don’t know if he [Kerry] used the term veto, [but] he said [going to] the Security Council is not an option. He was very clear with me,” Erekat told AFP.

Yet there has been recent speculation that the U.S. may not veto a Palestinian resolution. Tension between Israel and the U.S. has increased of late, including a recent anonymous U.S. official calling Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu a “chicken—-” amid American frustration with Jewish construction beyond the pre-1967 lines.
