1. Source: UN won’t advance Palestinian statehood bid until diplomacy option exhausted
United Nations panel considering Palestinian application for full UN membership will drag on dealing with technical matters for several weeks, says a senior Western diplomat.

By Shlomo Shamir and Reuters

snip* According to diplomatic sources, the U.S. and its Western allies have a special interest in ‘dragging’ the debate on, with the purpose of giving their efforts vis-à-vis Israel and the Palestinian Authority a fighting chance.

“There is no announcement expected - either positive or negative – regarding the Palestinian application until the members of the Council feel that all of the diplomatic avenues to bring the sides to the negotiation table are exhausted,” a senior Western diplomat said.
