PA: America Will Veto UN Effort to ‘End Israeli Occupation’

When Mr. Kerry addressed a new conference on Tuesday 24 Kislev however he said “We have made no determination about language, approaches, specific resolutions…This isn’t the time to detail private conversations or speculate on a UN Security Council resolution that hasn’t even been tabled no matter what pronouncements are made publicly about it.”

The US recently denied reports that it plans sanctions against Israel including refraining from coming to Israel’s aid in the Security Council with its veto power, explaining it will address each and every case individually.
