US to veto Kuwait’s draft resolution on Palestinians : Nikki Haley

US to veto Kuwait’s draft resolution on Palestinians
The United States are set to veto the Kuwait-sponsored draft UN Security Council resolution on international protection to Palestinians, living on Israeli-occupied territories and in the Gaza Strip, US Permanent Representative to the UN Nikki Haley said.

"The United States will unquestionably veto Kuwait’s draft resolution," she said. "It is a grossly one-sided approach that is morally bankrupt and would only serve to undermine ongoing efforts toward peace between the Israelis and Palestinians."

The ambassador added that the text of the resolution makes "not one single mention of Hamas," which her country accuses of being "chiefly responsible for the recent violence in Gaza."

"Those who choose to vote in favor of this resolution will clarify their own lack of fitness to take part in any credible negotiations between the two parties," she added.
