( While the Palestinian Authority is seeking for its Jordan-backed resolution on United Nations-imposed Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank to come up for debate soon at the U.N. Security Council, Jordanian Ambassador to the U.N. Dina Kawar said “the matter will take time.”

The Jordanians are cooperating with France and the U.K. to formulate a proposal that would keep the U.S. from vetoing the Palestinian resolution. While the U.S. has called the current wording of the Palestinian measure unacceptable, America may be open to adopting a Security Council decision that shores up efforts to renew Israeli-Palestinian talks without mandating a deadline for an “end to the occupation,” as the current resolution states.

“There is no sense of urgency [on the Palestinian resolution],” an anonymous diplomat quoted by Israel Hayom said.
