‘PA will not apply for full Palestinian state membership in UN’

The Palestinian Authority (PA) decided that it will not apply next week for a full membership of the state of Palestine in the United Nations (UN), said a senior diplomat.

Senior Palestinian officials had earlier stated that the PA would apply to the UN for a full membership in coincident with the visit of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to New York on Jan. 15 to chair the Group of 77 (G77) and China.

The G77 at the UN is a coalition of more than 130 developing nations, designed to promote its members' collective economic interests and create an enhanced joint negotiating capacity.

Reyad Mansour, the permanent representative of Palestine in the UN said "the current circumstances don't fit to ask for a full membership of the state of Palestine due to the United States' hostile and poisoned atmosphere."

Mansour accused the U.S. administration of exerting all possible efforts to convince the UN states members to refrain from voting in favour of the full membership bid.
