Palestine currently has observer status at the United Nations.

The General Assembly this Friday granted more rights to Palestine for its participation in the affairs of the United Nations, without this State having yet been able to acquire the status of full member.

The decision was endorsed by the vote of 143 member states that voted in favor of the UN General Assembly resolution, recommending that the Security Council favorably reconsider the issue of Palestine's membership.

The decision was made by the General Assembly following the veto issued by the United States in the Security Council against granting full membership to Palestine. Although the observer status of the State of Palestine has not been modified, the new rights grant it greater diplomatic weight. 

The granting of these new rights was adopted in a resolution, relative to the status of the observer State of Palestine in the United Nations, which was approved by 143 votes in favor, 25 abstentions and nine against.

Those that abstained were Albania, Austria, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Fiji, Finland, Georgia, Germany, Latvia, Italy, Lithuania, Malawi, Marshall Islands, Monaco, Kingdom of the Netherlands, North Macedonia, Moldova, Paraguay , Romania, Vanuatu, United Kingdom, Ukraine, Sweden and Switzerland. And those who voted against: Argentina, Czech Republic, Hungary, Israel, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Papua and the United States.
