My Way News - US protests "State of Palestine" placard in UN:
My Way News reports: "U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice objected Wednesday to the Palestinians' latest bid to capitalize on their upgraded U.N. status when their foreign minister spoke at the Security Council while seated behind a nameplate that read 'State of Palestine.' [...] Rice said that the United States does not recognize the General Assembly vote in November 'as bestowing Palestinian 'statehood' or recognition.' 'Only direct negotiations to settle final status issues will lead to this outcome,' Rice said."
