UN General Assembly calls for immediate cease-fire in Gaza
01/17/2009
The UN General Assembly overwhelmingly adopted a non-binding resolution demanding an "immediate and durable and fully respected cease fire" in Gaza on Friday night. The resolution reiterated the legally-binding UN Security Council resolution adopted last Thursday. The vote was 142-4 with eight abstentions, but several countries said afterward their votes were not counted correctly. The four no votes were: Israel, the United States, Nauru and Venezuela, which wanted a stronger resolution.
