How did your country vote on Palestine?

CBS News

The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) has overwhelmingly voted to support a Palestinian bid to become a full UN member by recognising it as qualified to join and recommending the UN Security Council “reconsider the matter favourably”.
Memberships can only be decided by the UN Security Council, and last month, the US vetoed a bid for full membership.
The current resolution does not give Palestinians full membership, but recognises them as qualified to join, and it gives Palestine more participation and some rights within the UNGA.
Here is a breakdown of how each country voted in the UNGA in New York City on Friday: For (143): A: Algeria, Andorra, Angola, Antigua and Barbuda, Armenia, Australia, Azerbaijan B: Bahamas, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belarus, Belgium, Belize, Benin, Bhutan, Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Botswana, Brazil, Brunei, Burkina Faso, Burundi C: Cabo Verde, Cambodia, Central African Republic, Chad, Chile, China, Colombia, Comoros, Costa Rica, Cuba, Cyprus D: Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea), Democratic Republic of the Congo, Denmark, Djibouti, Dominica, Dominican Republic E: East Timor, Egypt, El Salvador, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Estonia, Ethiopia F: France G: Gabon, The Gambia, Ghana, Greece, Grenada, Guatemala, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Guyana H: Haiti, Honduras I: Iceland, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Ireland, Ivory Coast J: Jamaica, Japan, Jordan K: Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan L: Laos, Lebanon, Lesotho, Libya, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg M: Madagascar, Malaysia, Maldives, Mali, Malta, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mexico, Mongolia, Montenegro, Morocco, Mozambique, Myanmar N: Namibia, Nepal, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Niger, Nigeria, Norway O: Oman P: Pakistan, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal Q: Qatar R: Republic of Korea (South Korea), Russia, Rwanda S: Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, San Marino, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Serbia, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Somalia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Suriname, Syria T: Tajikistan, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Turkey U: Uganda, United Arab Emirates, United Republic of Tanzania, Uruguay, Uzbekistan V: Vietnam Y: Yemen Z: Zambia, Zimbabwe Against (9): A: Argentina C: Czech Republic H: Hungary I: Israel M: Micronesia N: Nauru P: Palau, Papua New Guinea U: United States Abstained (25): A: Albania, Austria B: Bulgaria C: Canada, Croatia F: Fiji, Finland G: Georgia, Germany I: Italy L: Latvia, Lithuania M: Malawi, Marshall Islands, Monaco N: Netherlands, North Macedonia P: Paraguay R: Republic of Moldova, Romania S: Sweden, Switzeland U: Ukraine, United Kingdom V: Vanuatu

NEUTRAL

The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) has officially recognized Palestine as a qualified candidate for membership in the UN and recommended that the UN Security Council “reconsider the matter favorably” in an overwhelming vote in favor of the Palestinian bid for full membership.

The UN Security Council is the only body that can decide on membership, and the US vetoed a bid for full membership last month.

While acknowledging Palestine’s eligibility for membership, the current resolution grants Palestine more participation and certain rights within the UNGA but does not grant them full membership.
