UNITED NATIONS: Palestine will not have statehood after a UN resolution expected to give it upgraded status at the United Nations, Israel said.

"The UN resolution will not confer statehood on the Palestinian Authority," Israeli ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor said. The diplomat said that making Palestine a non-member observer state at the UN "will place further obstacles and preconditions to negotiations and peace."
