Palestinians to push UN vote despite US veto warning

US Secretary of State John Kerry talks before meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, at Villa Taverna, on December 14, 2014 in RomeThe Palestinians will press ahead Wednesday with a UN bid to boost their hopes of statehood, despite a warning that the US will block the move, officials said. “We will submit our project to the UN Security Council tomorrow,” a senior advisor to Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas told AFP late Tuesday. US Secretary of State John Kerry has held three days of intense talks in Europe seeking to head off a pre-Christmas crisis at the UN Security Council. In an escalating battle of wills, chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erakat shot back that if Washington uses its veto to scupper their plans, the Palestinians would then apply to join a series of international organisations.
