Clinton: U.N. Palestine Vote ‘Unfortunate And Counterproductive’

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday had harsh words for the vote by the United Nations General Assembly to recognize Palestine as a nonmember state.

"I want to say a few words about the unfortunate and counterproductive resolution at the United Nations General Assembly," Clinton said at an event in Washington, D.C.

Clinton went on to say that the vote "places further obstacles in the path of peace" and is not a prescription for peace between Palestine and Israel.

"We have been clear that only through direct negotiations between the parties can the Palestinians and the Israelis achieve the peace that they deserve," Clinton said.

Why is this the US' position? Seems this is a positive development.
