Ban: UN Members Will Decide on Palestinian State


UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon confirmed that he supports the establishment of an independent Palestinian state. He added, however, that the decision regarding such as a state will be made by the UN member countries.

“I leave it to the member states to decide whether to recognize or not recognize,” Ban was quoted by the Reuters agency as having said during a visit to Australia.
