NEW YORK – The United Nations Security Council will meet in a closed-door session Monday late afternoon to commence discussions of the Palestinian application for statehood.
The application, made last Friday by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, was forwarded on to the Security Council Friday afternoon.
Monday’s meeting will be an informal consultation, and will take place behind closed doors. The Security Council can then refer the issue to a committee.
