PA Official: U.S. Veto Won't Stop Us

A senior Palestinian Authority official responded on Wednesday to comments that were made by ​​Minister Uzi Landau during an interview on Voice of Israel Radio, in which he said that the United States will veto a recognition by the UN Security Council of a Palestinian state.

In a conversation with the PA-based Ma’an News Agency, the official said that Israel has become the spokesperson of the U.S. government. He added that the U.S. administration no longer plays a responsible and sincere role in the Israeli-Arab conflict and promised that “an American veto would not be the end of the road” for a Palestinian state.
