Palestinian foreign minister Riad al-Malki speaks to the press in the West Bank city of Ramallah on August 5, 2012, as Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) ministers gather in the neighboring Jordanian capital Amman to take part in the NAM's Committee on Palestine that was to have taken place in Ramallah, but was cancelled after Israel denied five NAM members entry. The ministers were to have attended a two-day meeting of the movement's Palestine Committee at which they were poised to sign a declaration supporting a fresh Palestinian bid for upgraded UN membership.
