Israel Summons Ambassadors who Voted in Favor of Palestinian State Recognition at UN

The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs has summoned the ambassadors of France, Japan, South Korea, Malta, Slovakia, and Ecuador in protest of their support for the recognition of Palestine as a full state at the UN Security Council. The ambassadors will be subject to a “firm protest” in person, along with countries that supported the Algerian proposal, such as Russia and China.

The proposal for Palestinian recognition as a full state was rejected due to the exclusive veto of the United States, who deemed it a “premature initiative.” Israeli Foreign Affairs spokesman Oren Marmorstein stated that the ambassadors will receive a clear message that political support for Palestinians and the call for recognition of a Palestinian State is seen as a reward for terrorism.

Israel emphasized that it will not tolerate the creation of a terrorist state that endangers its citizens. The Ministry also called on countries to pressure Hamas to release the 133 men and women being held hostage.

In response to the US veto, the Palestinian Authority has announced it will reconsider its relations with the United States. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas stated that the veto has sparked anger and could lead to instability and terrorism in the region.

The US Deputy Ambassador to the UN, Robert Wood, questioned the necessity of the resolution for Palestinian recognition and emphasized the need for a negotiated solution between Israel and Palestine. While Wood refrained from criticizing other countries for their vote, he noted that the US was put in a position where they had to vote against the resolution.
