(Worthy News) – A key UN committee approved a draft resolution Friday calling on the International Court of Justice to urgently issue its opinion on the legal consequences of allegedly denying the Palestinian people the right to self-determination.
The measure was vehemently opposed by Israel, which argued it would destroy any chance of reconciliation with the Palestinians.
The vote in the General Assembly’s Special Political and Decolonization Committee was 98-17, with 52 abstentions. The resolution will now go to the 193-member assembly for a final vote before the end of the year, when it is virtually certain of approval. [ Source: World Israel News (Read More…) ]
