PA Invites leaders to UN Flag-Raising Ceremony


Hundreds of world leaders are invited to a ceremony this month to raise the Palestinian Authority’s flag at the United Nations despite opposition from Israel and the United States, the Palestinian Authority’s UN envoy said Tuesday, according to AFP.

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas will attend the September 30 ceremony that follows a vote in the UN General Assembly to allow the flag of the PA to fly at UN headquarters in New York.

Although Israel says raising Palestinian flag ‘not a sign of peace,’ United Nations will attempt to impose talks at flag-raising ceremony.
