4. Palestinian UN bid moves step further in UN Security Council
Membership committee says report on Palestinian membership application to be presented by early next month.

<snip>

"UN Security Council's membership committee said Tuesday a report of its discussion on the Palestinian application for membership would be ready next month.

The report would be presented to the 15-nation council in early November by Nigerian Ambassador Joy Ogwu, who is chairing the committee in her role as president of the council in October.

European diplomats said the committee had finished discussion on the issue of a Palestinian state, the first of three criteria demanded by the council before it would grant UN membership to the Palestinians.

The committee will discuss in coming weeks the two other criteria, which call for a determination that it is a peaceful country making the application and that the country can fulfill obligations under the United Nations Charter, which is the world organization's constitution."
