Similarly, deputy State Department spokesman Vedant Patel said that the U.S. has... ... “been very clear consistently that premature actions in New York — even with the best intentions — will not achieve statehood for the Palestinian people.”. In response to the failed vote, Palestinian U.N. Ambassador Riyad Mansour told the council that the decision would not deter the Palestinian people.

We will not stop in our effort. The state of Palestine is inevitable. It is real. Perhaps they see it as far away, but we see it as near, Riyad Mansour, Palestinian U.N.
