will back any Palestinian UN bid to achieve statehood
Russia will back any Palestinian bid to achieve statehood
at a UN vote, Russia’s Permanent representative to the
UN Vitaly Churkin has said.
’We will, of course, vote for any of the Palestinian proposals.
But I must say that we did not push them toward this,” Churkin
told the Rossiya-24 TV channel.
“We say, however you decide, we will support you,” he
added.Moscow, which recognized Palestine in 1988, is a co-sponsor
of the Mideast peace process along with the United Nations, the
United States, and the European Union.
The Palestinians may put their bid to the full UN General Assembly
later this year.While most UN members support the bid, approval
by the General Assembly would only give the Palestinians non-member
state observer status. For full recognition, the bid would have
to be approved by the UN Security Council.
