WASHINGTON - The US Congress should reconsider funding for the United Nations if the Security Council approves a resolution on Palestinian statehood, Republican Senator John McCain said on Sunday.

McCain, in an interview on CNN's "State of the Union" show, said President Barack Obama should not even be considering such a resolution.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's comments last week just before his re-election opposing a two-state solution for Israel and the Palestinians widened a rift between him and the Obama administration.
