US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power defended her position against a Palestinian draft resolution calling for Israel to withdraw from Palestinian territories by late 2017 in a speech to the 15-nation council.

"The United States every day searches for new ways to take constructive steps to support the parties in making progress toward achieving a negotiated settlement," she said.

"The Security Council resolution put before us today is not one of those constructive steps," she said, adding that it would undermine efforts to achieve a two-state solution. "This text addresses the concerns of only one side."
