Jailed Fatah leader Marwan Barghouhti has criticized the UN resolution submitted to the Security Council by the PLO, urging the Palestinian leadership to re-word the proposal.
In a letter received by Ma’an News Agency, from jail, Barghouti said that the UN resolution is an “unjustified fallback which will have a very negative impact on the Palestinian position.”
He says he has always urged the leadership to take the question of Palestine to the UN to obtain a security council resolution, but any proposal must be in-line with inalienable national principles.
Barghouti further urged leadership to comprehensively revise the wording of the draft resolution to focus on the major issues of settlement expansion, Jerusalem, prisoners, and the blockade on the Gaza Strip.
