US Secretary of State John Kerry told European diplomats recently that Washington has no plans to permit any UN Security Council resolution related to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process to gain passage before the March general election, according to a report in Foreign Policy.

Citing unnamed European sources, the report said Kerry had conferred on the matter with former justice minister Tzipi Livni and former president Shimon Peres, who told the secretary that any UN resolution designed to pressure Israel would play into the hands of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his right-wing partner, Naftali Bennett of Bayit Yehudi.
