Palestine – President Mahmoud Abbas is preparing to bid for full UN membership this Friday during the UN’s 66th General Assembly session in New York.
• The vote would move Palestine from a nonvoting observer entity to observer state within the United Nations.
• More than 120 countries globally recognize Palestine as an independent state. To gain approval in its bid for full membership, at least 129 of the 193 members of the UN General Assembly must support the bid.
• Full membership would afford Palestine the right to sign certain international treaties.
• Israel does not support the bid under the argument that the Palestinian statehood drive violates the 1993 Oslo Accords, which stipulates that self-government was to be granted by Israel in phases.
