British Ambassador Matthew Rycroft said the proposed text was in line with London's position on Jerusalem as an issue that must be resolved through negotiations.

The decisions by U.S. President Donald Trump on December 6 to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem did not modify the common foundation on which all peace agreements must be based, he told the Security Council.

Rycroft said his country believes that Jerusalem is a final-status issue and that Jerusalem should be a shared capital for Israelis and Palestinians.

This has infuriated the Palestinians and Arab countries, which have strongly protested against the USA move.

They warned that Mr. Trump's announcement about Jerusalem, which upended decades of American policy, threatened to subvert the effort to solve one of the world's most intractable conflicts.

The mayor thus expressed their protest against the decision of the President of the United States Donald trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. "It should be an embarrassment to the remainder of the Security Council", she said, arguing that her country had the sovereign right to determine where or whether to establish its embassy in another country.

He added that the Arab group in the United Nations will convene later to assess the situation and determine the next step in order to defend the status of Jerusalem. In 1967 during the six day war under Israeli control moved East Jerusalem.

Delattre said France will support it and that he expected the "overwhelming majority" of council members to do the same.


Following the US block on the U.N. resolution, a spokesman for Erdogan said that the annulment of Trump's decision would be sought in the U.N. General Assembly.

Riyad H. Mansour, Permanent Observer for the State of Palestine, said it is reprehensible that the United States has chosen to disregard global law and undermine its own role in any future peace process.

The draft resolution had included a call on all countries to refrain from opening embassies in Jerusalem, reflecting concerns that other governments could follow the United States lead.

Without agreement on Jerusalem, there will be no peace agreement, he noted.

The European Union reiterated that its position is that a realistic resolution between the Israelis and Palestinians is a two-state setup with Jerusalem as the capital of both.

Introducing the resolution, Egypt's Permanent Representative Amr Abdellatif Aboulatta said that the U.S. decision violated Council resolutions on the status of territories occupied by Israel and also the UN Charter which prohibits annexation of territories.

Indeed, our president is letting the world know - including the anti-Semitic United Nations cesspool in Manhattan - that their historical Jew hatred will not be tolerated and that politics-as-usual will take a back seat to the enduring truths of the Bible, in which the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob mandated that their inheritance of the land of Israel is totally immutable.
