‘US an enemy’: Palestinian official blasts Washington over UNSC statehood veto — RT News
Palestine will start an international campaign showcasing the US as “an enemy,” pushing Israeli extremists to carry on with their actions and supporting Israel in everything, Fatah central committee member Abbas Zaki said.
Zaki, also the former representative of the Palestine Liberation Organization in Lebanon, told RT Arabic that the latest developments in the UNSC were not a failure for Palestinian diplomacy.
“It’s just the persistent unwillingness of the US
administration to give the Palestinian people its lawful right of self-determination. It’s a very dangerous precedent,” he said.
“The US administration realizes very well that 138 states support Palestine as having UN observer status. The US knows that there are many decisions and resolutions of international organizations condemning the Israeli crimes and injustice towards the Palestinian people,” Zaki said.
He added: “Regardless of all that, the current US administration still uses its right to veto. In such a way, the US wants to tell Palestine not to address the UN, neither today nor in the future.’
