Veasey Statement on United Nations Security Council Resolution on Israel
Dallas / Fort Worth, TX - Congressman Marc Veasey, TX-33, released the following statement in response to the United Nation's Security Council's decision to vote on resolution regarding Israel:
"I urge the President to respect our country's longstanding history of supporting a two-state solution between the residents of Israel and the Palestinians. The United Nations Security Council resolution as proposed undermines the ability for these two parties to come to the table and resolve their issues in a way that upholds the security of one our greatest allies in the Middle East and respects the Palestinian people by placing sole responsibility for decades of violence on Israel. Any long-term solution must result from direct bilateral negotiations and the United States has a responsibility to support these goals."
