US vetoes UN draft on settlements - Middle East - Al Jazeera English: "The US has vetoed a UN Security Council resolution that would have condemned Israeli settlements as 'illegal' and called for an immediate halt to all settlement building.

All 14 other Security Council members voted in favour of the resolution, which was backed by the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO), on Friday.

He added that the European Union's three biggest nations hope that an independent state of Palestine will join the UN as a new member state by September 2011.
