The UN and Palestine: Security Council Vetoed Draft Resolutions

The UN and Palestine: Security Council Vetoed Draft Resolutions

English
Body: 

Lists the most important draft resolutions that gained the majority of votes (except in the case of a 2014 draft that obtained only 8 votes, making a permanent member veto unnecessary), but failed because of the veto privilege enjoyed by permanent members. In all cases (with the exception of two drafts in 1963 and 1966 vetoed by the Soviet Union), the veto was used by the United States against drafts that appeared to favor the Arab-Palestinian point of view.
