The UN General Assembly voted 105-4 on the resolution inviting the Palestine Liberation Organization to participate in the Assembly debate. Twenty members abstained. Those voting against were the United States. Israel, the Dominican Republic and Bolivia. Among those voting in favor were France, Italy and Jordan. Britain was among the abstainers. In a statement after the vote, Israeli Ambassador Yosef Tekoah told reporters: “This marks the surrender of the UN to murder and barbarism. Israel will have no part in this surrender.” He added that Israel, however, will continue to seek peace in the region in accordance with the government’s decision.
