Russia and China are arguing with the US over the UN resolution on Gaza

Russia and China, which have veto power on the UN Security Council, expressed their concerns on Thursday with a US draft resolution that would back a proposal – outlined by President Joe Biden – for a ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian militants Hamas.

The council’s only Arab member, Algeria, also signaled it was not ready to support the text, diplomats said. A resolution requires at least nine votes in favor and cannot be vetoed by the US, France, Britain, China or Russia.

Biden a week ago presented a three-phase ceasefire plan for the Gaza Strip that he described as an Israeli initiative.
