USA has vetoed UN’s draft resolution on Palestinian statehood

SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – US Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power said: “We voted against this resolution not because we are indifferent to the daily hardships or the security threats endured by Palestinians and Israelis. But because we know that those hardships will not cease and those threats will not subside until the parties reach a comprehensive settlement achieved through negotiations,” said Power.

Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian representative at the UN, said: “The Security Council has once again failed to uphold its charter duties to address these crises and to meaningfully contribute to a peaceful and lasting solution in accordance with its own resolutions.”
