After US veto, UN General Assembly to meet on Jerusalem status

  • Nikki Haley vetoes UN Anti Israel resolution

In 1947, the United Nations voted to divide the Palestine Mandate into a Jewish and Arab state, with Jerusalem as an global zone.

"Now, God willing, we will carry the resolution to the U.N. General Assembly", Erdogan a joint news conference with the Djibouti's President Ismail Omar Guelleh.

Egypt had put forward the draft at the council which was backed by all 14 other Security Council members in the vote on Monday.

Haley's tweet on Tuesday was not her first time warning that the US would be "taking names" at the U.N. She similarly used the line in January, shortly after taking office, when she advised countries not to cross the U.S.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has made it a personal mission to eradicate antisemitism at the global intergovernmental institution, declaring in April 2017 that calls for the destruction of Israel constitute "modern antisemitism" and promising to treat the Jewish state with "impartiality".

A statement from the party called the move a slap in the face for the whole world and denounced what it said was the United States' support for Israel's ongoing crimes against the Palestinian people.

"The General Assembly will say, without the fear of the veto, that the worldwide community is refusing to accept the unilateral position of the United States", Mansour told reporters.

Key US allies Britain, France, Italy, Japan and Ukraine were among the 14 countries in the 15-member council that voted in favor of the measure.

Trump's Jerusalem decision upended decades of USA policy on Jerusalem, and has threatened to derail future peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians - talks that Trump has vowed to broker.

She went further on Tuesday, warning in her Twitter post: "At the United Nations we're always asked to do more & give more". On Thurs there'll be a vote criticizing our choice.

Israel considers all of Jerusalem to be its capital.

Tzur said Trump "took a courageous and unprecedented step that none of his predecessors were willing to take and we must honor him for it". The Palestinians view the east as the capital of their future state. Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said that those countries who voted for the resolution "have only reaffirmed the UN's decades-long double standard when it comes to Israel".
