Prof Dr Zulfiqar Ali Khan returns from WHO meeting


Dr Zulfiqar Ali Khan successfully represents UOL at WHO meeting in Jordan. Government spokesman Mark Regev said the move had taken Palestinians and Israelis out of a negotiating process. The General Assembly voted resoundingly to recognise the Palestinians as a non-member observer state on Thursday. The Palestinians can now take part in UN debates and potentially join bodies like the International Criminal Court. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said it was the "last chance to save the two-state solution" with Israel. There were celebrations on the streets of Ramallah in the West Bank as the result was announced. But Mr Regev, a spokesman for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, denounced Mr Abbas' bid as "litany of libellous charges against Israel". "This is negative political theatre that takes us out of a negotiating process. It's going to hurt peace," Mr Regev told the BBC. 'New ball-game' Some 138 members of the assembly, including many EU states, Russia, China, India and Brazil voted in favour of recognising the Palestinians as a non-member observer state.
