UN Security Council To Consider Palestine Resolution ‘Soon’

A draft resolution to revive talks on a final Israeli-Palestinian settlement is expected be presented to the UN Security Council by the middle of the month, the Palestinian Envoy to the United Nations said on Monday. Palestinian representative Riyad Mansour said the text, being shepherded by France, is expected to lay out a time frame for negotiations on a final peace deal and possibly a second deadline for Palestinian statehood.“The French are moving more and more, trying to bring all the European colleagues together, and I think that eventually they will succeed,” Mansour said.  The French-led European initiative is expected to be discussed in Brussels on Tuesday when US Secretary of State John Kerry holds talks with European ministers during a NATO meeting.
