Washington, June 2 (BNA): The Kuwaiti-sponsored draft resolution calling for international protection of the Palestinians failed in the UN Security Council after the U.S vetoed it.

Ten out the council’s 15 members voted for the Arab-backed draft resolution.

Following the vote, Kuwait’s Permanent Representative to UN, Mansour Al-Otaibi, said that the veto would increase the sentiment of despair among the Palestinians, Kuwait news agency (KUNA) reported.
