Jordan, an Arab member of the U.N. Security Council, will formally present “in the next few days” a draft resolution setting a timeframe for the creation of a Palestinian state, Arab League chief Nabil al-Araby said.
“The Palestinian issue has been circulated in the past, but what is new today is that the Arab states and Palestine decided to go to the Security Council, through Jordan, with an Arab draft resolution, ” he said, after an Arab League foreign minister’s meeting in Cairo.
Arab League foreign ministers agreed on Saturday to formally present a draft resolution to the United Nations Security Council that will set a timeframe for the creation of a Palestinian state.
The ministers set up a committee comprised of Kuwait, Mauritania, Jordan and Arab League chief Nabil al-Araby to begin seeking international backing for the resolution, they said in their closing statement.
The statement did not specify when the resolution would be presented but diplomatic sources have said Jordan, an Arab member in the Security Council, could present the draft within days.
