Reuters , Friday 23 Sep 2011

The United Nations spokesman's office says the Palestinian statehood application has been relayed to the Security Council

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Friday forwarded to the Security Council the Palestinian application for formal recognition of their statehood, a U.N. spokesman said.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had earlier filed the application with Ban. The Security Council is expected to take some time to consider the Palestinian application, which the United States has promised to veto should it be brought to a vote.
