The UN Security Council Committee for Admission of New Members was unable to endorse Palestine’s bid to join the ranks of this international organization. The draft report circulated at the UN headquarters in New York said that the votes of the committee’s 15 Member States were divided.

On October 31, Palestine was granted full UNESCO membership. During the vote, it received the support of 107 countries, including Russia.  Voting “against” were 14 states, in particular, the U.S. and Israel. (Reuters)
