U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), member of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs, this week joined U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Ben Cardin (D-Md.) to introduce a resolution objecting to the passage of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334, as well as all efforts that undermine direct, bilateral negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

“These actions follow a pattern of behavior by the Obama administration that has resulted in strained relations between the United States and Israel,” Sen. Moran said. “Allowing the passage of such a one-sided Security Council resolution that seeks to harm Israel ultimately pushes bilateral talks and peace between Israel and the Palestinians further out of reach. I am committed to working with my colleagues in Congress and the new administration to make certain we stand with our allies and that the United Nations cannot be used as a forum to create policies that hurt our nation, its allies, and our mission of peace.”
