Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) released the following statement in advance of today’s scheduled anti-Israel resolution at the U.N. Security Council.

“It has long been the position of the United States to oppose one-sided or anti-Israel resolutions at the United Nations.  That’s what this is, and the Obama Administration should veto it. A durable and sustainable peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians will come only through direct bilateral negotiations between the parties.”

NOTE:  Last month, the House of Representatives unanimously passed H. Con. Res. 165, a bipartisan resolution authored by Chairman Royce and Ranking Member Engel which called on the administration to oppose and veto U.N. Security Council resolutions that are one-sided or anti-Israel.
