At UN, Palestine Sends Resolution for Observer State Status, Vote "Near Future"

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive

UNITED NATIONS, November 8 -- Two days after the US presidential (re) election, Palestine's Observer Mission to the UN on Thursday sent to UN member states its draft resolution to upgrade its status in the General Assembly.

  Inner City Press has obtained a copy of Palestine's draft resolution, and puts it online here.

  After recalling and stressing many things, the resolution would grant Observer State status, and hope that the Security Council grant full status.

  In the interim, Palestine has had win and losses in getting seated in UN bodies, as Inner City Press has reported, from the Arms Trade Treaty through the Law of the Sea to Geographical Names.

Now, Palestine has written to member states with "note verbal MI.274/12 regarding a draft resolution on the enhancement of the status of Palestine in the United Nations General Assembly to be considered by the Assembly at a date to be announced in the near future."

  How will the US (and EU and others) respond? Watch this site.
