Israel summons French ambassador over UN Palestine vote

Dec. 31, 2014 9:55 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 3, 2015 3:14 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Israel's government summoned the French ambassador on Wednesday over his country's support for a failed Palestinian bid to pass a UN resolution setting an end date for Israeli occupation.

Foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon told AFP that the ambassador, Patrick Maisonnave, was being summoned to the ministry in Jerusalem later in the day.

France along with China and Russia were among the eight countries which voted in favor of the text on Tuesday, but the resolution fell short of winning the nine "yes" votes necessary for adoption within the 15-member Security Council.
