UN Security Council to address Israel’s annexation plan later this month: Palestine UN envoy

A high-ranking Palestinian official says the UN Security Council is scheduled to convene later this month to discuss Israel’s controversial plan to annex much of the occupied West Bank, and to rally international pressure on the regime to abandon the decision.

Palestinian Ambassador to the UN Riyad Mansour told the official Voice of Palestine radio station on Thursday that a meeting will be held on the 20th of this month, with the rotating President of the UN Security Council, Sven Jürgenson, and President of the UN General Assembly, Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, in attendance, Palestine’s official Wafa news agency reported.

Mansour highlighted that the State of Palestine is resolved to form “a powerful and broad international front of all components of the international community to confront the [Israeli] policies of annexation.”
