PLO member says Palestinians nixed UN vote because draft failed to condemn US

A senior member of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) confirms to Turkish news agency Anadolu that the Palestinians have pulled their request for a United Nations Security Council vote against the US Middle East peace plan.

The report says the withdrawal is due to the updated draft resolution failing to include a condemnation of the United States.

Meanwhile, senior Israeli officials are quoted by Channel 13 as claiming that the Palestinians have not withdrawn their request. That report says the UN vote has merely been delayed, as there are still disagreements and discussions regarding the text of the resolution.
