Peters Statement on United Nations Security Council Resolution Vote on Israel

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) today released the following statement ahead of the United Nations Security Council’s vote regarding Israel:

“I am concerned that one-sided actions against Israel at the United Nations would undermine any future efforts to bring Israelis and Palestinians to the table. We need to focus on achieving a two-state solution that would bring peace and security to Israel and a future Palestinian state. The resolution currently being considered by the United Nations Security Council would mark a significant step backwards with respect to the peace process between Israel and the Palestinian people, and I urge the Administration to do everything to ensure this resolution is not considered or adopted by the Security Council.”
