A draft Security Council resolution has now been submitted by Jordan on behalf of the Palestinians to the UNSC. The draft sets a one-year deadline for negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians and is aimed at the full withdrawal of Israeli forces from Judea and Samaria. The Palestinians are not yet pushing for a vote, presumably in the hope of negotiating the text to make it more amenable to the Europeans and the U.S. It remains to be seen if the U.S. will exercise its Security Council veto.

The New York Times has helpfully provided the full text of the resolution in its coverage of the story.
