THE UNITED NATIONS, December 24. /TASS/. The United Nations Security Council is not expected to vote on the draft resolution on Palestine until the year-end, diplomats from the member-states of the UN’s most powerful body told TASS on Wednesday.
The United Kingdom's ambassador to the UN, Mark Lyall Grant, said the Council has not been discussing the draft resolution, which was introduced by Jordan last week.
Mahamat Zene Charif, the ambassador of Chad, which holds the presidency of the UN Security Council in December, also confirmed that the member-states were not discussing the document.
The draft resolution gives 12 months for a comprehensive settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which envisages the creation of a “sovereign and viable” Palestinian state. The document also says that all Israeli forces must be withdrawn from the occupied territory no later than 2017.
Russian Permanent Representative in the UN Vitaly Churkin said earlier Russia was ready to support the draft resolution on the Palestinian state. He also said the document would get the necessary majority of nine votes.
