Nebenzia: United States veto of Palestine’s UN membership demonstrated what they really think of Palestinian

New York, SANA- Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzia said that the United states “once again demonstrated what they really think of the Palestinian” when it has vetoed against a Palestinian request for full UN membership at the Security Council.

After the United States vetoed the draft resolution, Nebenzia said this marked the fifth time the United States has vetoed a council resolution since the start of the of the worsening situation in Gaza, RT reported.

The United States “once again demonstrated what they really think of the Palestinians,” he said. “For Washington, Palestinians do not deserve to have their own State. They are only a barrier on the path towards realizing the interests of Israel.

He said at present, an absolute majority of the global community supports Palestine’s application to become a full member of the UN.

The vote in the 15-member Security Council was 12 in favour of the resolution, which was introduced by Algeria.
