The UN did not accept the US resolution

The US negotiated the language of the proposed resolution with the governments of Egypt and Qatar before submitting it to a vote at the UN Security Council. The version of the resolution that was circulated Thursday morning linked the cessation of hostilities to the release of hostages held in Gaza by Hamas, the Associated Press reported. The revised version that was voted on Friday, however, does not impose such a precondition for the "imperative of an immediate and sustainable ceasefire."

But the UN Security Council failed to pass the resolution in a vote on Friday morning, with Algeria, China and Russia voting against it.

US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield sharply criticized the veto by China and Russia, noting that these countries did not condemn Hamas for its attacks on Israel on October 7, 2023.

“Russia has once again put politics before progress,” Thomas-Greenfield said shortly after the vote.

It is unclear if or when another vote will take place. France said it would work to prepare its own ceasefire resolution after the American resolution failed.
