Following 20 years of failed negotiations, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas made the application on 23 September. Insisting that the move was a last resort, the Palestinian leadership now requires nine of the 15 members of the Security Council to support their bid for UN recognition. The issue is expected to take some time to come to a vote, with the UN security council beginning consultations on the application last week.
