No consensus on full membership for Palestine- UN


A UN Security Council committee has failed to agree on a common response to a renewed bid by the State of Palestine for full United Nations membership, Paralel.Az reports citing DW.

Malta's ambassador to the UN, Vanessa Frazier, who currently chairs the committee, said after a meeting in New York on Thursday that two-thirds of the members were in favor of the application while five were opposed.

It is considered unlikely that the committee will then recommend that the Security Council vote on the application. However, a resolution to that effect could be introduced at any time by any member state of the Security Council.
