The Palestinian Authority denied on Sunday that it has handed out a draft resolution against settlements to permanent members of the UN Security Council.

PA Foreign Minister Riad Malki said that the Palestinian mission in New York provided Arab ambassadors to the UN with a copy of the draft resolution for consultations and as a first step towards bringing to before the Security Council.

Malki ruled out the possibility that the proposed resolution would be brought for voting during PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s presence in New York on April 22.

According to Malki, the new draft resolution is not different from the one that the Palestinians came up with in 2011.
