All we want is the application of international law

­Faed Mustafa – Palestinian Ambassador to Russia

Today my guest is Faed Mustafa.
The United Nations Security Council has started talks over the Palestinian bid for country representation at the UN.
The decision is not expected soon, as Israel has powerful allies – including the US that has vowed to veto the application.
But the Palestinians have supporters, too. And they strongly believe recognition is the only way to protect their rights.
But if it happens, will the newly-recognized state be able to maintain peace amid such strong disagreement with its closest neighbor? Won’t it spark even more hostilities in the region?

We’re talking to Palestinian Ambassador to Russia Faed Mustafa.
