Abbas warns of legal action on Israel settlements before Kerry visit

Palestinians wave their national flag as they await the release of Palestinian prisoners in Jerusalem on December 31, 2013Ramallah (Palestinian Territories) (AFP) – Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas warned Tuesday of legal and diplomatic action to stop Israeli settlement expansion, on the eve of a new peace mission by US Secretary of State John Kerry. Abbas's warning came after Israel freed 26 prisoners earlier in the day, as part of US-brokered peace talks, which Kerry hopes to reinvigorate during his visit. The release prompted celebration among Palestinians, who welcomed the prisoners back into the West Bank and Gaza Strip after they had spent two to three decades in Israeli jails. But as Kerry geared up for his 10th visit since March, an anticipated announcement by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government of further settlement construction looked set to cast a new cloud over the talks.


Jordan assumes U.N. Security Council chair as conflicts persist

By Louis Charbonneau UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – Jordan takes over the U.N. Security Council presidency on Wednesday, the first day of its two-year stint on a 15-nation body struggling to cope with conflicts in Syria, South Sudan, Central African Republic, Mali and elsewhere. Jordan will join Chad, Chile, Lithuania and Nigeria on the council until December 31, 2015. The U.N. General Assembly elected Amman in early December as a replacement for Saudi Arabia after Riyadh turned down the seat in protest at the council’s failure to end the Syrian war and act on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and other Middle East issues. Although Jordan was a last-minute stand-in for the Saudi kingdom, Amman’s U.N. ambassador, Prince Zeid Ra’ad Zeid al-Hussein, has a reputation at the United Nations for his outspoken stance on human rights issues, U.N. diplomats say.
