Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the Obama Administration’s decision to abstain from voting on an anti-Israel UN resolution:

“No matter the misguided actions of the Obama Administration, America’s relationship with Israel is strong. Refusing to veto an anti-Israel UN resolution will do absolutely nothing to promote peace in the region and only continues this Administration’s policy of undermining our allies. The new Republican government looks forward to working with our ally Israel and will stand up at the United Nations to prevent future ill-conceived resolutions.”
