  • U.S. Reiterates Opposition to One-Sided UN Security Council Action Against Israel – Michael Wilner and Herb Keinon
    State Department spokesman Mark Toner, asked Tuesday about possible U.S. support for UN Security Council action on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, replied, “I can firmly shut that door….Our position hasn’t changed in terms of action on this issue at the UN Security Council…[and the U.S. is] opposed to it.”
    Edgar Vasquez, an official at the U.S. Mission to the UN, told theJerusalem Post on Wednesday: “We continue to oppose one-sided resolutions that delegitimize Israel or undermine its security.”
    Last week a bipartisan group of congressmen sent a letter to President Obama urging him “to continue to insist that it is only at the negotiating table – and not at the UN – that the parties can resolve their complicated differences. Your continued commitment to longstanding U.S. policy to veto one-sided UN Security Council resolutions remains fundamentally critical.”  (Jerusalem Post-U.S. State Department)
