On Gaza Closed Door UN Security Council Meeting Set After Kuwait and Bolivia Request With Press Banned

By Matthew Russell Lee, CJR Letter PFTracker

UNITED NATIONS GATE, November 13– On Gaza there will be a UN Security Council consultation meeting on November 13, at the request of Kuwait and Bolivia.
