PM: Not Sure if UN Vote on PA Avoidable

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, Sunday, that he was not sure that Israel and the United States could get enough votes in the United Nations Security Council to prevent a vote on full UN membership for the Palestinian Authority.

Interviewed by the British Broadcasting Corporation's Arabic service, Netanyahu said that a lot of people have been calling for an end to the Arab-Israeli conflict, which is why he has been calling for the resumption of talks, and expressed hopes that talks would resume.
