Palestinian authorities say they will press ahead with their efforts at the United Nations (UN) to seek official statehood despite a joint US-Israeli bid to stymie the attempts.
The Palestinians will present a bid for statehood to the UN Security Council (USNC) on Wednesday amid reports that Washington and Tel Aviv are formulating a joint position against the Palestinian move at the headquarters of the world body, where the US has persistently used its veto privilege to block any resolution not favored by the Israeli regime.
However, Palestinian officials appear adamant about the move, saying they will submit to the council the draft resolution that would set a two-year deadline on the Israeli forces to withdraw from occupied Palestinian lands.
