UN votes symbolically in favor of Palestinian membership

UNITED NATIONS, United States, May 10, 2024 (BSS/AFP) - The UN General Assembly voted overwhelmingly Friday in support of a Palestinian bid for full membership of the organization, a symbolic move due to the United States' veto in the Security Council.

The resolution, which states that the Palestinians should be admitted to the UN and grants them some additional rights as observers, received 143 votes for, 9 against and 25 abstentions.
