Palestine pushes for full-fledged UN membership

Palestinian envoy to UN sends letter to UN secretary-general requesting renewed consideration of membership application

By Diyar Guldogan

WASHINGTON (AA) - The State of Palestine sent a letter Tuesday to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres requesting renewed consideration of its membership application.

"In reference to the application of the state of Palestine for membership in the United Nations in contained document S/2011/592 dated 23 September 2011 and upon the instructions of Palestinian membership, I have the honor to request that renewed consideration be given to this application by the Security Council during April 2024," Palestinian envoy to the UN Riyad Mansour said in the letter.

Mansour said he would be "grateful" if Guterres would transmit the request to the Security Council "as soon as possible."

The State of Palestine was accepted as an observer state of the UN General Assembly in 2012, allowing its envoy to participate in debates and UN organizations but without a vote.

According to the UN Charter, states are admitted to membership in the UN by a decision of the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council.
