Harper rejects Palestinian statehood bid

OTTAWA—The intractable Middle East conflict threatens to overshadow Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s trip to the United Nations next week.
Harper is travelling to the large General Assembly gathering ostensibly for meetings on Libya and child and maternal health.
On Friday, the Prime Minister was drawn into the brewing showdown over the Palestinian bid for statehood recognition at the UN.
“We view this unilateral action on behalf of the Palestinian Authority to be not helpful,” Harper said during a stop in Saskatoon.
