Q+A: What comes next with Palestinian U.N. application?
<snip>

"The fate of the Palestinian application for membership in the United Nations might be decided on November 11, when the U.N. Security Council hopes to hold a final meeting to decide on its response.

The date represents a delay in dealing with the Palestinian application, submitted by President Mahmoud Abbas on September 23, amid hopes that indirect Israeli-Palestinian talks scheduled for next week could get a peace process off the ground.

Israel and the United States oppose the Palestinian bid for membership and recognition of a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, with East Jerusalem as its capital, saying it is aimed at de-legitimizing Israel. They say the only way Palestine can get statehood is via peace talks with Israel.

Here are some questions and answers about how the Security Council and its committee on admitting U.N. member states will handle the application and the likely outcome."
