State of Arkansas Archives: on Foreign Policy

Bruce Westerman: Negotiate Israel-Palestine deal directly, not through UN

Any Palestinian effort to change its status should be via direct, high-level talks with Israel and not via the United Nations General Assembly or other UN organizations.

As a Member of Congress I will support efforts to withhold UN funding or PA aid in response to any move to recognize or legitimize a Palestinian state outside of the context of direct talks. Furthermore, I would support congressional action that would press other regional nations to normalize relations with Israel.

Additionally, as a Member of Congress, I will publicly urge the administration to veto any anti-Israel resolution brought before the UN Security Council, to fight against anti-Israel efforts in the UN General Assembly, and to strongly support Israel joining the Security Council.
