10:16 pm
special coordinator for middle east peace nicholai malott and off but the united states was also hoping to get a statement to the press from a unified security council condemning the attacks from gaza and also. calling on the palestinian leadership condemning the palestinian leadership for quote allowing these attacks to happen it had circulated some language that it was hoping all of the council members could get onboard with we know from comments made by other ambassadors going into the council that you know like the united kingdom's ambassador and the bass are from the netherlands they have said that they certainly condemn any rocket fire into civilian territory in israel but the press statement it looks like at this point does not have universal approval from the security council kuwait has raised some objections the statement that was put forward by the united states had no mention of israel's role in leading up to this conflict there was no mention of the one hundred twenty or so palestinians who've been killed
10:17 pm
unarmed palestinians who were killed at the border fence in the last two months and with that background it looks at this point that the council will not take any unified action as a result of this meeting but they are getting a briefing on the latest situation there. no unified action giving any action is like a own on israel and palestine to come out of it the u.n. security council. well moving forward the kuwaitis who are the only arab representative on the security council have been working on a resolution a draft that would set up an international protection mission for the palestinians this is something they've been working on behind the scenes pressing ahead making concessions it's not expected to pass either with the united states stance on the council and its protection of israel but the kuwaitis are pressing ahead looking for concessions they've already made some serious concessions to what they were
10:18 pm
initially proposing there were concerns that they were not specific enough about what an international protection mission would mean what would the mandate be how would that be set up in what would it accomplish and so there are reservations among many council members they've now asked the secretary general to look at the issue for sixty days and come up with some recommendations that would help protect palestinian civilians it's not clear at this point however if they have much support in the council the goal seems to be to isolate the united states with all other council members having expressed concern and questioning if not outright condemning israel's action against those protesters in gaza not clear however if the other members of the count's are willing to go along at this stage and back the draft at this resolute at this stage and foresee united states use its veto in order to shut it down christians and to me thank you very much i still find his
