.

13 out of 15 U.N.

Security Council members supported Algeria's resolution.

Proceeding with a vote today was wishful and irresponsible, and so while we cannot support a resolution that would put sensitive negotiations in jeopardy, we look forward to engaging on a text that we believe will address so many of the concerns we all share, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., via statement.

We just weren’t able to support a resolution today that was going to put sensitive negotiations in peril– and that’s what we believe this resolution would do, John Kirby, National Security Council spokesman, via statement.

Instead, America has proposed a temporary ceasefire to ensure "the safety of and support for the civilians," President Biden said earlier this month.
