Palestine submits UN resolution against Israeli occupation

Palestinians have submitted a draft UN Security Council resolution in an effort to end Israeli occupation by the end of 2017.

The draft was presented to the UN by Jordan, said Palestinian envoy to the UN Riyad Mansour at a press conference on Wednesday.

“We are willing to work with those who want to work with us for meaningful things,” Mansour said following a closed-door meeting with Arab representatives.
