President Abbas’ UN speech will take place on September 27

President Abbas will deliver his UN speech at the General Assembly of the United Nations to ask for recognition of Palestine as a non-member state.The speech will take place on September 27.

“As in every year I will be telling the whole world about the suffering of my people under the Israeli occupation and its settlements, settler attacks and violations on a daily basis which contradict the United Nations and international law,” says President Abbas.

The United States opposed Abbas’ 2011 bid for UN membership, which got stuck at the Security Council, where the US has veto power.
