UN Basic Meeting backs Palestinian bid for club – International


The United Nations General Assembly on Friday overwhelmingly backed a Palestinian bid to become a full U.N. member by recognising it as qualified to join and recommending the U.N. Security Council “reconsider the matter favourably”, Reuters reported.

The assembly adopted a resolution with 143 votes in favor and 9 against, while 25 countries abstained. It does not give the Palestinians full U.N. membership, but recognises them as qualified to join.

The vote by the 193-member General Assembly was a global survey of support for the Palestinian bid to become a full U.N. member – a move that would effectively recognise a Palestinian state.

The resolution “determines that the State of Palestine … should therefore be admitted to membership” and it “recommends that the Security Council reconsider the matter favourably.”
