The Palestinian observer mission to the United Nations on Wednesday appealed to the world body's 193 member states to support its call to be allowed to fly its flag at U.N. headquarters as a "non-member observer state."

The statement from the Palestinians also responded to allegations by Israel's U.N. Ambassador Ron Prosor, who on Tuesday called the Palestinian push to fly their flag alongside full member states' "another cynical misuse of the U.N. by the Palestinian Authority."

"We ... respectfully appeal to the member states of the General Assembly to support the draft resolution on the raising of the flags of the non-member observer states," the Palestinian mission's statement said.
