Palestine toasts full membership of UN climate body

Palestine will become the UN climate forum’s newest member in 2016 as it builds a greater stake in global institutions.

The state will be upgraded from ‘observer’ to ‘party’ status by March, having submitted accession papers as countries signed a momentous pact in Paris.

“The State of Palestine is strengthening its pillars in the international arena,” ambassador Riyad Mansour told the debating chamber on 12 December. “We are so proud of this moment.”

Previously, Palestinian envoys have been limited to expressing their positions through colleagues in the Arab Group and G77 bloc, or speaking only after the full parties have had their say.
