(Worthy News) - Israel is concerned that the highly anticipated Quartet document could be the core of a new United Nations Security Council resolution to replace UNSC Resolution 242, which until now has been the basis for Mid-East diplomacy since 1967.
In the last few years the Palestinians have pushed for the UNSC to amend that 1967 resolution to more clearly reflect their stance on the contours of a two-state solution.
When it comes to the impact of the document itself, however, Israel is not expecting the Quartet report on the Middle East to be “overly dramatic.” [ Source ]
