United Nations General Assembly Resolution 67/19 (2012)

A resolution adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 28 November 2012 by a vote of 138 For, 9 Against (including Israel, United States and Canada), 41 Abstaining, 5 Absent. The resolution accorded Palestine the status of a non-member observer State in the United Nations, akin to that of the Holy See (Vatican), based on the Palestinian people’s right for self-determination and a large number of relevant General Assembly and Security Council Resolution. It further reaffirmed the United Nations’ commitment to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on pre-1967 lines. The resolution was adopted on the 65th anniversary of UNGA Resolution 181.
