Gardner Statement on U.N Vote Condemning Israel

Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) today released the below statement urging President Obama to veto the United Nations (U.N) Security Council resolution condemning Israel:

"I implore President Obama to veto the U.N Security Council's resolution that condemns our friend and ally, Israel. A veto maintains the United States' longstanding policy to support Israel against consistent bias at the United Nations, and I urge President Obama to follow this policy by directing a U.S. veto of this misguided and counterproductive action and reaffirming that the United States stands with Israel."
