The talks opened at United Nations headquarters in NY with a moment of silence for the 60 Palestinians who died Monday, the majority killed by Israeli fire, in the bloodiest day in Gaza since 2014.
Monday was the deadliest day there in years, with dozens of Palestinian protestors killed, including 8 children.
On Monday, Palestinians all over the world commemorated the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, or Catastrophe: the systematic eviction of more than 700,000 Palestinians from their homes and communities before and in the aftermath of the State of Israel's Declaration of Independence on May 14, 1948.
Notably, Kenya was among 21 countries that failed to vote at the UN General Assembly in a resolution aimed at condemning Washington's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
"I support the Embassy moving to Jerusalem, and I think one death is too many on any side", said Suzy Sholin, who supports Israel.
Deputy Ambassador Michael Baror said they were sorry for the loss of lives, and added that their problem is with the regime, not Palestinians.
Consequently, the country was invited to a January 3 USA reception for United Nations member-states that did not vote in the resolution.
