WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today issued the following statement on the U.N. Security Council’s draft resolution regarding Israel:

“Earlier this fall I joined Senate colleagues urging the Administration to uphold its position opposing one-sided resolutions at the U.N. Security Council regarding Israel. Any lasting peace must be negotiated between Israelis and Palestinians, not imposed by the international community. My hope is that a new year will bring a new commitment by both sides to earnestly work towards a peace agreement.”
