It is time for the US to acknowledge the tide of history and finally recognize Palestine’s statehood following a UN vote, President Gül says.

Rresident Abdullah Gül has called on countries who opposed the upgrade of Palestine’s status at the U.N. General Assembly to review their positions, in an explicit reference to the United States, one of nine countries who voted against Palestine’s non-member state position during the U.N. vote. Gül’s call came as Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas paid his first visit abroad to Turkey following the historic U.N. vote.

“We hope that those who abstained will change their current positions in a short time and lend their support to Palestine. I have no doubt that those countries who voted against [upgrading Palestine’s status] will review their decisions and understand that they cannot maintain their position continuously,” Gül told reporters during a joint press conference with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. He particularly stressed the large majority that had voted to upgrade Palestine’s status at the U.N. from “observer entity” to “non-member state.” More at hurriyetdailynews
