PA Dropping Bid To Become Full UN Member


The Palestinian Authority is dropping its bid to become a full member of the UN, its UN envoy said Monday, according to The Associated Press.

The envoy, Riyad Mansour, told reporters that the day will come when “obstacles” in the Security Council to full UN membership for “Palestine” will be removed “but that day is not today.”

The main hurdle is the United States which would more than likely veto any Security Council resolution granting the PA full membership of the global body. The US says the only way PA can gain full membership at the UN is by negotiating a peace deal with Israel.
