Go Palau!

In Cuba on October 29, 2009 at 11:37 am

“The nonbinding resolution has been an annual ritual for 18 years. The vote this time of 187 in support, 3 opposed and 2 abstaining underlined the utter lack of support for the 50-year-old American attempt to isolate Cuba. (Israel and Palau joined the United States, while the Marshall Islands and Micronesia abstained.)” – The New York Times

This reminds me of the results of another annual UN resolution.

Question of Palestine – Peaceful Settlement of the Question of Palestine (UNGA 63)

164 Yes – 7 No – 3 Abstentions

No: Australia, Israel, US

Abst: Canada
