US blocked proposed UAE adopts resolution on the cease-fire in the Gaza Strip, RIA Novosti reports.
It should be noted that 97 states supported the resolution and 13 members of the UN Security Council spoke in favor of the resolution. Great Britain abstained.
The draft document demanded that the parties to the conflict in Gaza immediately end hostilities and release all hostages, as well as ensure the flow of humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip.
In October, the United States vetoed a similar draft resolution proposed by Brazil. Earlier, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres demanded that the Security Council prevent a humanitarian disaster in the Gaza Strip and also called for a ceasefire.
