Amnesty International has criticised New Zealand’s recently proposed resolution to the U.N. Security Council which calls for the resumption of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) as well as halting the Palestinian campaign to bring Israel to trial at the International Criminal Court.

Amnesty said it is “deeply concerned” about New Zealand’s proposal, which asks both Israel and the PA to cease from “referring a situation concerning Israel or the occupied Palestinian territories to the International Criminal Court.”

The proposal “disregards the situation of Palestinian and Israeli victims… and would not address the impact of the long-standing impunity in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories,” Amnesty Executive Director in New Zealand Grant Bayldon wrote.
