UK and France vow to halt Palestinian UN bid

E-mail Print PDF

Britain, France and Colombia plan to abstain from a UN Security Council vote on Palestinian statehood, in a setback to efforts to secure international support for the Palestinian bid.

The US has pledged to veto the Palestinian attempt if it is brought to the vote in the 15-member council, but the Palestinians had hoped to gather a nine-vote majority, forcing America to cast its veto, which would award the Palestinians a moral victory.

TVNL Comment: The UK was the nation that stole the country from the people living there and gave it to a third party. You expect them to play fair? Israel is the only nation to ever exist that supposedly has a right to do they say.
