Israeli Envoy: PA Violating the Conventions it Seeks to Join

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Ron Prosor, said on Sunday that the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) bid to join 15 international conventions and treaties was ironic, given that the PA violates most of the clauses of the conventions to which it is applying.

Prosor, who spoke at the Jerusalem Post conference and was quoted by Army Radio, said that the PA wants to enjoy the privilege of being a member of the UN, but "they tend to forget the surprising concept that joining international treaties also includes obligations.”
