Like identical measure H. Con. Res. 128 of 4/15/16, this resolution stated that the UN cannot be a “truly neutral arbiter” and that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can only be resolved through bilateral negotiations. It also called for the Obama administration to veto any UNSC resolutions concerning “Israeli-controlled territories” (i.e. Israel’s settlements in the oPt).
It was introduced a month after the Wall Street Journal reported (3/7) that the Obama administration was considering support for a UNSC resolution calling for Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
15 cosponsors (14R, 1D).
Last major action: 4/19/16 referred to Senate Comm. on Foreign Relations.
