Page (1) of 1 - 12/30/14||
|The United Nations Security Council has rejected a Palestinian-backed resolution calling for Israel to withdraw from disputed territories by late 2017, with the United States voting against the measure and five other nations abstaining from the vote. United States Ambassador to the U.N., Samantha Power, referred to the resolution as a staged confrontation, and said it would not bring the parties closer to achieving a resolution.
