 Arab-Israeli conflict: UN General Assembly calls for talks in Moscow

The UN General Assembly called for an international conference in Moscow to help resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict.

According to the Jerusalem Post, the call was carried out despite the fact that Russia is waging war against Ukraine, which has made Russia an international pariah.

The call was included in a broad text entitled “Peaceful settlement of the question of Palestine”, which was approved by 154 votes. 9 countries were against, 10 abstained.

In general, the 15-point resolution called for the resumption of peace talks between Israel and the PA, the cessation of Israeli settlement activities.

Point number three in the text called for “the timely convening of an international conference in Moscow, as envisaged by the Security Council in its resolution 1850 (2008) to advance and accelerate the achievement of a just, lasting and comprehensive peace settlement.”

Ukraine is noted to have voted in favor of the resolution. Against: Canada, Hungary, Israel, Liberia, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and the United States. Australia was among those who abstained.
