On Gaza, Arab Ambassadors Convey Dissatisfaction to SC Prez, No Sunday Plans

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive

UNITED NATIONS, November 17 -- At India's Mission to the UN at 6 pm on Saturday, Arab Ambassadors were to meet about Gaza with Security Council president Hardeep Singh Puri. Inner City Press went to stake it out.

After 6:45 pm, Morocco's Permanent Representative Loulichki emerged. Inner City Press asked him about the next step on Gaza, if a Sunday meeting of the Security Council should be expected.

"Not yet," Ambassador Loulickhi told Inner City Press. "We are considering all options."

Moments later, Palestine's Permanent Observer Riyad Mansour emerged with the Indian Mission with two colleagues. Inner City Press asked him the same question.

He replied that Arab League foreign minister had expressed their dissatisfaction with the Security Council's inaction, "and we conveyed that to the President." Like Loulichki, he said that all options are being considered, but not to expect a Security Council meeting on Sunday.

Across Second Avenue from the Indian mission there were protest in front of the office building housing Israel's Mission to the UN. There were television news trucks covering the protest, but not the Arab Ambassadors' meeting with the Security Council president. And so it goes at the UN. Watch this site.
