Kerry: We Didn’t Draft The U.N. Resolution

During Secretary of State John Kerry remarks regarding peace in the Middle East, he addressed claims that the United States orchestrated a controversial U.N. resolution.

“We also strongly reject the notion that somehow the United States was the driving force behind this resolution. The Egyptians and Palestinians have long made clear to all of us, to all the international community, their intentions to bring a resolution to a vote before the end of the year,” Kerry told the audience.

Kerry went on to say, “The United States did not draft or originate this resolution, nor did we put it forward. It was drafted by Egypt. It was drafted and I think introduced by Egypt, which is one of Israel’s closest friends in the region, in coordination with the Palestinians and others.”

On Tuesday, David Keyes, who is the Prime Minister of Israel’s spokesperson said there was no doubt that the Obama administration was behind the U.N. resolution calling their information “ironclad.”
