Storyline


The United Nations has reaffirmed its support for the "two-state solution" after the United States vetoed the widely-supported resolution to accept Palestine as a full member of the UN.

The U.S. veto came on Thursday at a meeting of the 15-member UN Security Council, in which 12 voted in favor of the resolution while the United Kingdom and Switzerland abstained. If it had passed, the resolution would have then moved on to the General Assembly for its approval.

Explaining the veto, Robert Wood, U.S. Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN, said the country supports the "two-state solution" but emphasized that Palestinian statehood can only be achieved through direct negotiations between the involved parties.

"The United States continues to strongly support a two-state solution. This vote does not reflect opposition to Palestinian statehood. But instead, is an acknowledgment that it will only come from direct negotiations between the parties," Wood said.

Stephane Dujarric, chief spokesman for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, noted that "the two-state solution" is still their guiding principle and called on collective efforts towards its realization.

"A two-state solution remains the loadstar for the Secretary-General, and he thinks everyone should be working towards that. I'm not going to get into analysis and hypotheticals at this point," Dujarric said.

Earlier this month, Palestine's renewed request for full member-state status at the United Nations was evaluated by the UN Committee on the Admission of New Members. This revival of their membership bid in early April was supported by the 140 countries that recognize Palestine as an independent state.

Permanent Observer of Palestine to the United Nations Riyad Mansour said it has sufficient support and will not give up its efforts to become a full member of the UN.

"I was moved by all of your statements those who voted in favor and even those who voted differently. Of the passion that it contained in your commitment and understanding the pain and the moment of the Palestinian people. I salute you in the name of the Palestinian people and their leadership," Mansour said.
