US won’t back Palestinian UN resolution #PalestineState ~ MEE and agencies, Middle East Eye, Thursday 18 December 2014.
Israel says would never accept ‘unilateral’ recognition of Palestinian state!
The United States will not support the current resolution put forward by the Palestinians setting the terms of a peace deal with Israel, a US official said Thursday.
Washington has seen the text of a draft resolution circulating in the UN Security Council and “it is not something that we would support,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters.
“We think others feel the same and we are calling for further consultations. The Palestinians understand that.”
She pointed to a statement from Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas that he would support further consultations, adding US Secretary of State John Kerry had been holding discussions with different parties on Thursday.
