Bennet Introduces Resolution Objecting to UN Resolution Targeting Israel

Washington, D.C. - Today Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet joined a bipartisan group of lawmakers to introduce a Senate resolution objecting to the passage of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334, as well as efforts that undermine direct, bilateral negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

"One-sided resolutions at the United Nations, like Resolution 2234, do not bring the parties closer to direct talks," Bennet said. ""We should support policies that promote security on the ground and advance a negotiated solution with two states living side by side in peace."

U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Ben Cardin (D-MD) introduced the resolution today. They were joined by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Bob Casey (D-PA), Chris Coons (D-DE), John Cornyn (R-TX), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Joe Donnelly (D-IN), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Dean Heller (R-NV), John McCain (R-AZ), Bob Menendez (D-NJ), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Bill Nelson (D-FL), Rob Portman (R-OH), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), and Todd Young (R-IN).
