US blocked the UN Statement about Gaza Operation

World News – The United States on Tuesday blocked a UN Security Council statement on the Gaza conflict, saying it was “counter-productive” amid intense efforts to reach a ceasefire, diplomats told AFP.

 

Russia had said it could press for a full council resolution calling for hostilities to end if the Arab-proposed statement was blocked. But with Egyptian-led truce efforts gathering pace, it was unclear whether Russia would go ahead with the bid, which could lead to a US veto.

 

The United States sent a letter to other council missions just before a Tuesday deadline to approve the statement, saying it was “failing to address the root causes” of the showdown between Israel and Gaza’s Hamas rulers, according to UN diplomats.

 

The US letter called the statement “counter-productive” and added that it was “failing to contribute to diplomacy.” (AFP)
