Palestinian Observer sees this week's vote in the General Assembly as historicListen /
The Permanent Observer of Palestine is promising a historic event will take place in the UN General Assembly this Thursday 29th November.
Riyad Mansour told reporters at the United Nations Tuesday that's when President, Mahmoud Abbbas with a large Palestinian delegation will contribute to efforts with all their friends in the General Assembly to legislate the recognition of the State of Palestine and also change their status to an un-permanent observer State.
"That would be a historic moment in the struggle of the Palestinian people and a a historic moment in the history of the United Nations in which the exercise that started in 1947 when the General Assembly legislated two States. O November 29, 2012, the General Assembly would legislate the recognition of the State of Palestine. So the global consensus of the two-State solution from the perspective of the United Nations will legally become a reality of having two States recognized by the General Assembly that would pave the way for the possibility of serious negotiations between the two States to end the occupation of one State to the land of the other State."
Mr. Mansour says it would also allow for ending the occupation of his land and the independence of the State of Palestine on the borders of the 4th of June 1967 with East Jerusalem as its capital.
