Bolton Sets Reporter Straight on ‘Palestine’: ‘It’s Not a State’


(Worthy News) - A White House reporter took issue Wednesday with John Bolton for referring to the “so-called State of Palestine,” prompting the National Security Advisor to explain that it is, in fact, “not a state.”

Appearing in the briefing room to speak about the administration decision to terminate a 63-year-old Treaty of Amity with Iran, Bolton also announced the withdrawal from a Vienna Convention optional protocol relating to dispute resolution. He said the step was being taken in response to a case brought before the International Court of Justice “by the so-called State of Palestine” in response to the U.S. Embassy move to Jerusalem.
