Palestinian official: Britain has duty to back us at UN

Britain has a "historic responsibility" to support the upcoming Palestinian bid to upgrade its status at the UN, a Palestinian delegate to the global body told The Daily Telegraph.


"As the former colonial power, Britain has an historic responsibility to Palestine," she said. "Britain is a very important country in the Middle East, it has extensive trade relations, and David Cameron should know he risks a popular backlash from Arab public opinion if he does not support us."
