CHRISTIAN BREAKING NEWS: US Vetoes Resolution Backing Full UN Membership for Palestine | 12 Countries were in Favor and 2 Abstained on the Resolution

The United States followed through on its pledge to veto an United Nations Security Council resolution granting Palestinians full UN membership.

12 countries voted in favor, surpassing the 9-vote threshold required to override the US veto.
Slovenia, Sierra Leone, Russia, South Korea, Mozambique, Malta, Japan, Guyana, France, Ecuador, China, and Algeria voted in favor of the bill.

The United Kingdom and Switzerland abstained on the resolution.

The Biden administration has consistently opposed Palestinian efforts to gain statehood recognition at the UN, claiming that the goal should be reached through direct negotiations with Israel.

More recently, US officials have stated that such efforts undermine the administration’s active pursuit of a 2-state solution through a broader regional initiative that would begin with a hostage deal, followed by a permanent end to the war, Arab involvement in Gaza reconstruction with assistance from a reformed Palestinian Authority, Saudi normalization with Israel, and a strengthened Mideast front against Iran.
