US State Dept Slams UN Security Council Resolution Against Israeli Settlements

The US State Department today condemned efforts by the Palestinian Authority to bring a resolution before the UN Security Council pointing out the illegality of the Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, but declined to answer questions on whether the US would veto the resolution.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry mocked the resolution, saying it proved how desperate the Palestinians were, and cautioned European nations which might support such a resolution not to give the Palestinians false hope that the settlements would stop being expanded into their territory.'
