Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas makes UN statehood bid

Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has submitted his bid to the UN for recognition of a Palestinian state.

To rapturous applause in the General Assembly, he called on the Security Council to approve a state within pre-1967 borders.

He said the Palestinians had entered negotiations with Israel with sincere intentions, but blamed the building of Jewish settlements for their failure.

Israel’s PM will speak shortly. Israel regretted the bid, his spokesman said.
