The UN General assembly is likely to adopt a resolution next week that would allow the Palestinian flag to be raised at the United Nations in time for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ visit to New York, the Palestinian representative to the United Nations Riyad Mansour said Thursday.
The 193-nation body will vote on September 10 on the measure, predicted to easily garner enough support for easy passage, according to AFP.
“We have the votes and we are working to get as many votes as we can,” Mansour said.
Abbas is scheduled to visit the UN in New York on September 30, in time for the UN to execute its decision, yet Mansour declined to say whether there would be a formal flag-raising ceremony during the PA president’s trip.
