According to a report in the New Zealand Herald, McCully has said that New Zealand would wait to see the wording of any resolution before reaching a decision.

The Palestinian Foreign Minister, Riyad al -Maliki, is reported as having assured McCully that the draft resolution will be available for study ahead of the UN vote.

Discussions took place about the establishment of a Palestinian diplomatic office in Wellington.

It was Ryad al-Maliki’s first visit to New Zealand.

    What is the purpose of New Zealand or anyother country supporting a state of Palestine? What will New Zealand gain? NOTHING! Our beautiful country which is isolated from the world’s trouble should not be supporting statehood for a bunch of terrorists. Let us mind our own business and stay out of trouble. To insult the Chosen People will be the same as insulting the ALL-MIGHTY.

    Barry Smith was right. New Zealand would be the first to feel God’s wrath such as natural disasters. Keep on going up against the people of Israel and the Holy Land as a whole and you will have only yourselves to blame.
