New Zealand to present UN measure on Israeli-Palestinian crisis

Deploring a failure of diplomacy, New Zealand said Thursday it will present a draft UN resolution to try to revive Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts after a French measure fell flat.

Foreign Minister Murray McCully told the Security Council he hoped the measure would help “stimulate a level of debate” on the way forward as Israel and the Palestinians sink deeper into violence. “The events of recent weeks cry out for council action,” said McCully. “While we remain ready to support any other reasonable proposals for progress, we will, over the coming days, share the text of a draft resolution,” he said.
