Jordan's ambassador forced to file Palestinian UNSC resolution under Arab pressure

December 19, 2014 02:08

NEW YORK -- The Arab group pressured Jordanian ambassador Dina Kawar to file the Palestinian resolution to the UN Security Council, according to diplomatic sources on Thursday.

According to the sources, Kawar was extremely reluctant to submit the draft on Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank. She reportedly did not wish to speak to the press and had to "practically be shoved out the door."

Jordan is trying to act as cautiously as it can under the pressure of US disapproval and Arab pressure.

The country itself is a tinder box right now, with its Palestinian population agitated due to events in Jerusalem and the further deterioration of the situation in Syria.
