Australia will abstain from voting in the UN General Assembly on the resolution to upgrade the Palestinian Authority to non-member state status, after Australian Prime Minster Julia Gillard faced pressure from her cabinet not to vote with Israel and the US against the move, The Sydney Morning Herald reported on Tuesday.

The vote is scheduled to take place on Thursday in the 193-seat body.

According to the report, all but two of Gillard's cabinet members opposed Gillard's desire to vote against the resolution during a meeting on the subject on Monday night.
