Israel accepted into UN space coalition after 32-year wait | New York Post

Syria and Libya were already members, but Israel wasn’t?

It took “intensive diplomatic efforts” to secure the acceptance after reps for Syria and the Arab Group long opposed Israel’s inclusion in the Vienna-based committee.

“The vote today proves that there are some countries who find it more important to bash Israel than to contribute to the International community, like Qatar who abstained on the vote, even though it was a vote on its own acceptance to the committee,” the Israeli mission said in a statement.
