Abbas Leaves UNSC After Palestinian Statehood Call Rather than Hear US Response

During a speech before the UN Security Council (UNSC), Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas walked out on US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley’s rebuttal to his speech - provoking a sharp rebuke from the Washington rep.

The main subject of Abbas' Tuesday speech was a call for the UN to formally recognize Palestinian statehood. "I call upon members who have yet to recognize the state of Palestine to do so. In the future, we will intensify our efforts to achieve membership in the United Nations," he said.
