NEW YORK — The United States objected to the appointment of a former Palestinian prime minister to lead the United Nations political mission in Libya.

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said in a press statement that that the US was disappointed to learn UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres planned to appoint Salam Fayyad as the special representative.

"For too long the UN has been unfairly biased in favour of the Palestinian Authority to the detriment of our allies in Israel," Haley said.
