Trump team plans to block Palestinian diplomats
The US government will not permit Palestinian diplomats to be appointed to prestigious positions at the United Nations until Washington is satisfied the Palestinian Authority (PA) is cooperating with Israel in peace talks, US Envoy to the UN Nikki Haley said at the annual Policy Conference of the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
Karabakh Today reports that Haley said that she and the US government would block the appointment of any Palestinian diplomat to what she described as one of the highest positions that had ever been offered to a PA official at the UN.
“Until the PA comes to the table until the Palestinian Authority and responds the way it is supposed to, there are no freebies for the PA anymore,” Haley stated on Monday.
She also said that the United States would never permit any more resolutions condemning Israel to be approved by the UN Security Council while the Trump administration was in office.
Haley described herself as “a new sheriff in town” at the United Nations and said she was determined to restore US leadership there.
