UN: PA Requests to Join 13 International Conventions and Treaties


United Nations (UN) special envoy on Mideast peace, Robert Serry, has confirmed the receipt of requests made by the Palestinian Authority (PA) to join 13 international conventions and treaties.

The PA had promised they would make no requests for membership in UN organization during the peace talks with Israel, in exchange for the release of hundreds of incarcerated Arab terrorists.

These requests go against the set agreement, as the PA ploughs forth in search of recognition of a Palestinian state, outside of any negotiations with Israel.
