"The United States said explicitly for the first time on Thursday it would veto a Palestinian bid for full U.N. membership, drawing an immediate rebuff from the Palestinians who vowed to press ahead. George Mitchell, a former U.S. envoy, said he saw little chance of talking the Palestinians out of seeking full U.N. membership for a state in the Gaza Strip and West Bank, a step requiring a vote in the Security Council where the United States holds a veto."
