Press Conference

The Security Council work programme for December would contain 18 open meetings — including 2 debates, 11 briefings and 5 meetings to adopt draft resolutions — as well as 20 closed consultations, Council President Vitaly Churkin (Russian Federation) said at Headquarters today.

At a press conference where he briefed on his country’s December presidency, he said the Council would adopt about 10 draft resolutions in addition to issuing a number of presidential statements, expressing hope that the Council would have concluded its work by 22 December.


Responding to a question about the Palestinian application for United Nations membership, he said the expectation was that the matter would be acrimonious, but the contrary was true. Things had evolved in a very harmonious way, he said, estimating that the Council was prepared to vote on the matter as soon as the Palestinian side indicated their preferred date, and as soon as a draft resolution, to be prepared by Lebanon, was submitted. Neither had happened yet, he noted.
