It is really unfortunate that the United Nations Security Council failed to adopt the resolution on the approval of nationhood to Palestine and membership to UN.

The long-anticipated draft tabled on Tuesday night drew the support of eight countries — Argentina, Chad, Chile, China, France, Jordan, Luxembourg, Russia — just one shy of the nine needed to pass a resolution in the absence of a veto by any of the Council’s five permanent members.
The United States and Australia opposed the resolution while the United Kingdom, Nigeria, South Korea, Rwanda and Lithuania abstained.
