UNITED NATIONS - The UN Security Council plans to discuss in July the possibility of Palestine becoming a United Nations member state, the Security Council president said on Tuesday.

The Arab League has said it would request UN membership for a Palestinian state in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, with east Jerusalem as its capital at the UN General Assembly in September.

An open debate on the Middle East has been scheduled for July 26 according to a provisional calendar for the Security Council for July.
