UNITED NATIONS, July 22, 22:38 /ITAR-TASS/. Palestine’s appeal to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for international protection deserves serious attention, Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said on Tuesday.
Speaking at a meeting of the Security Council that focused on the situation in the Middle East, Churkin said the Security Council would be prepared to consider possible steps to remedy the situation in Gaza.
“We believe that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ appeal to the U.N. Secretary-General for international protection deserves serious attention. We would also be prepared to consider proposals which we know the League of Arab States (LAG) has about the role the U.N. Security Council could play in this situation,” the diplomat said.
He expressed surprise at the fact that during the debates Jordan, which is the only LAG representative in the Security Council, did not even mention these proposals.
Last week, Abbas sent a written appeal to Ban, asking him to place Palestine under U.N. protectorate. The U.N. Secretariat said the secretary-general was studying the issue.
