Israel has been under pressure from the countries of European union and Russia to deal the issue of two state solution. Since Palestine applied for UN membership which is being opposed by Israel.
In late Oct., the Palestinian National Authority was admitted to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization as a full member, prompting the U.S. and Israel to move respectively to halt financial contributions to the organization and speed up housing construction in Jerusalem and the West Bank.
