The Palestinian Authority late Monday night submitted a draft resolution to the UN General Assembly which if approved will upgrade its status to nonmember state, the Wall Street Journal reported.

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



The Palestinian resolution reportedly is 316-words-long and calls for a resumption of peace talks with Israel following the UN vote.

According to the Journal, the draft lacks any mention of a construction moratorium in Israeli settlements as a precondition to future negotiations, nor of joining UN agencies and treaties.

Israel and the US have put intense pressure on PA President Mahmoud Abbas to forego the UN initiative.
