Hebron, 30th Nov: Palestine overwhelmingly won a historical UN General Assembly vote which will upgrade its status to non-member observer state at the world body, despite intense opposition from the US and Israel.
India was among the 138 nations in the 193-member body that voted in favour while nine countries opposed the resolution that sought upgrading the status of Palestinian Authority from ‘entity’ to ‘non-member observer state.
The US, Israel ec. were resisting the application of the Palestine for membership in the UN since 1949. Now that the non-member obserrver status has been given, the next step is to get full membership. The US, Israel etc. were isolated this time. It is a great decision by the UN. Congratulations to Palestine people an
