UN Security Council to examine Palestinian bid for UN membership on Sept 26

The UN Security Council will examine the Palestinians’ request to recognize their state as sovereign on September 26. The information comes from Chairman of the Security Council Nawaf Salam.

On Friday, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas sent UN Head Ban Ki-moon an official request to recognize his Autonomy as an independent and sovereign state and grant it membership in the UN.

If the Palestinians fail to secure UN membership the General Assembly may still grant them the observer-state rights which will allow Palestine to sue Israel in the International Criminal Court.
Addressing the 66th General Assembly session Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu said peace could be achieved through negotiations rather than resolutions.
