US Vows to Veto UN Resolution on Israel

The United States says it will use its full power to block a United Nations resolution condemning Israel's illegal settlements, a US diplomat says.

"We have made very clear that we do not think the Security Council is the right place to engage on these issues," and that the US will use “tools that we have” to block any resolution, AFP quoted Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg as telling the House of Representatives' Foreign Affairs Committee on Thursday.'
