Lebanon at UNSC: Set borders not required for statehood

Permanent borders are not necessarily a prerequisite for statehood, permanent Lebanese Ambassador to the United Nations Dr. Nawaf Salam said at a UN Security Council meeting on the Middle East and Palestinian question.
The Lebanese ambassador said a number contains borders that are subject to change.
Salam argued that Palestinians deserve statehood because a recognized state allows for self-determination, an unalienable right for all human beings.
He said that Palestinians, according to the UN, have been promised statehood since it was declared in UN resolution 3236 of 1974, which ratified the right of the Palestinians to "national independence and sovereignty."
