Palestinians withdraw request for Security Council vote on US Mideast plan – diplomats

The Palestinians have abandoned their request for a vote at the UN Security Council tomorrow on rejecting the US Middle East peace plan, over a lack of international support, diplomats say.

Introduced by Indonesia and Tunisia, the resolution risked not having nine out of 15 votes in its favor, the minimum required for adoption provided there is no veto by a permanent member, the diplomats tell AFP.
