Palestinian Presidency considers US veto on UN resolution insult

RAMALLAH– The Palestinian Presidency said Monday the US veto against a UN draft resolution over Jerusalem was an insult against the international community and showed how Washington was biased to the Israeli occupation.

The US veto against an Egyptian-sponsored resolution, which rejected America’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, is in the face of an international consensus and violates UN resolutions, presidency spokesman Nabil Abu Rudainah said in a statement, cited by Palestine news agency (Wafa).

The US veto, he added, would “isolate America and provoke the international community.

“We will defend our rights within the UN and in all international institutions,” he added.
