Russia 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.
