US Congress on Thursday voted not to support a unilateral Palestinian declaration of statehood.

The House of Representatives passed a resolution expressing opposition to steps Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has been taking to obtain recognition for a Palestinian country with 1967 borders, without an agreement with Israel.

According to the resolution, which was adopted by consensus without a vote among members of the House, the US will not recognize a Palestinian state declared unilaterally, and will veto an proposal that is brought to a vote at the UN Security Council on recognition of a Palestinian state without Israeli agreement.
