Palestinians push UN bid as Kerry begins European talks

US Secretary of State John Kerry (C) arrives at Ciampino International Airport, on December 14, 2014, in RomeThe Palestinian leadership on Sunday said it planned to submit a resolution to the UN Security Council setting a two-year deadline for Israel to end its occupation, as US Secretary of State John Kerry launched a flurry of European meetings to revive the stalled peace process. Washington’s diplomatic manoeuvring comes amid a European-led drive towards a recognition of Palestinian statehood at the United Nations. In the past, the US has consistently used its power of veto at the UN to block moves it sees as anti-Israel, but US officials said Kerry was now seeking to learn more about the European position. Seizing the momentum, a senior Palestinian official said they would present a draft UN resolution in coming days on ending the Israeli occupation by late 2016.
