Marchant Statement on UN Israel Resolution

WASHINGTON, DC – December 22, 2016: U.S. Congressman Kenny Marchant (TX-24) issued the following statement on the United Nations Security Council vote on an anti-Israel resolution:

“This posturing at the UN is nothing but an attempt to delegitimize the democratic State of Israel,” said Marchant. “The Administration must veto this resolution – before it further strains the cooperation by both parties to engage in direct negotiations. President-Elect Trump correctly stated that long maintained peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians will only come through direct negotiations between the parties. The United Nations must not interfere through harmful resolutions in those negotiations.”
