Security Council fails to agree on Palestine’s membership

NEW YORK April 12. 2024 (Saba) - The UN Security Council failed yesterday, Thursday, to reach consensus on the Palestinian initiative to obtain full membership in the United Nations, despite the support of two-thirds of the members of the committee responsible for accepting new members to the Council.

In September 2011, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas requested “the State of Palestine’s accession to the United Nations,” but this only resulted in obtaining the status of “non-member observer state” in November 2012.

Last week, Palestine re-initiated its membership application in a letter addressed to the Security Council, which began the review process last Monday.

Deputy US Ambassador Robert Wood confirmed on Monday that “our position has not changed,” stressing that recognition of a Palestinian state must take place within the framework of an agreement with Israel, and not in the United Nations.

He stressed that his country is "bound by American law," which stipulates that "if the Security Council approves the accession of a Palestinian state outside a bilateral agreement," funding for the United Nations must be "cut off."

For his part, the Palestinian Ambassador to the United Nations, Riyad Mansour, said this week, “All we ask is to take our legitimate place within the international community,” expressing his hope that the Security Council will vote on the 18th of this month.
