UN General Assembly backs Palestinian bid for full membership

The United Nations General Assembly has supported a Palestinian bid for full UN membership by recognizing them as qualified to join and recommending the UN Security Council “reconsider the matter favorably.” The vote, with 143 in favor and nine against (including the US and Israel), acknowledges Palestine’s eligibility for membership under the UN Charter. However, it does not grant immediate full membership, requiring approval from both the Security Council and the General Assembly. Despite facing likely US veto in the Security Council, the resolution reflects broad international recognition of Palestine’s legitimacy and the two-state solution. Palestinian and Arab representatives welcomed the decision, emphasizing the need to address Palestinian suffering and pursue peace. Conversely, Israeli and US representatives criticized the resolution, advocating for direct negotiations between the parties for a two-state solution.
