UN General Assembly President Joseph Deiss said on Friday that a Palestinian state could not become a member of the United Nations without a recommendation from the Security Council, The Associated Press reported.

Deiss said that if the US or any other permanent council member used its veto, the General Assembly would not be able to vote on membership for Palestinian state.

When asked during a press conference if the Security Council resolution would be vetoed, Deiss said that they was no other way for the Palestinians to achieve UN membership.
