Canada to review ties with PA after UN vote

Dec. 1, 2012 9:39 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 2, 2012 6:20 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Canada will review its relationship with the Palestinian Authority after the UN General Assembly voted to admit Palestine as a non-member state, the Canadian foreign minister said Friday.

"Canada is deeply disappointed but not surprised" by the General Assembly resolution on Palestine, John Baird said in a statement.

Condemning Palestine's pursuit of UN membership as unilateral and an "impediment to peace," Baird said its representatives to Israel and Ramallah would be summoned to Ottawa to decide Canada's response.

"Canada will now review the full range of its bilateral relationship with the Palestinian Authority," he said.

Canada joined Israel, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Palau, the Czech Republic, Nauru, Panama and the United States to vote against Thursday's resolution, which passed with 138 votes.
