WASHINGTON - The Palestinian push for UN membership is not going anywhere for now, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday, making the case that the Palestinians should resume peace talks with Israel.

Clinton also said she has asked the US Congress to allow the United States to keep funding UN agencies that grant the Palestinians membership, saying cutting off bodies like the International Atomic Energy Agency would hurt US interests.
