Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad al-Malki said Monday that Nigeria, a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, would vote in favor of the Palestinian statehood bid, Ma'an News Agency reported.

Last week, Defense Minister Ehud Barack said he was convinced Nigeria would not vote to support a resolution granting Palestinian independence in the Security Council.

The US has said it was hoping that the resolution would not receive the nine necessary votes in favor so that it does not have to use its veto.
