Turkey says regrets to see veto of United Nations resolution on Jerusalem
Dec 19, 2017, 10:47
The US has vetoed a UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution criticising President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move its embassy to the city which is also claimed by Palestinians.
The Egyptian-drafted text reiterated the United Nations position on Jerusalem, affirming "that any decisions and actions which purport to have altered, the character, status or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem have no legal effect, are null and void and must be rescinded in compliance with relevant resolutions of the Security Council".
The United States was certain to veto the Egyptian-sponsored resolution, but its Arab supporters wanted the vote to demonstrate that countries everywhere and even many US allies such as Britain, France and Japan are against Trump's action.
Al Jazeera reports that the draft "did not mention the U.S. by name", in an apparent effort to keep Washington from using its power of veto.
Explaining the negative vote (veto), US Permanent Representative Nikki Haley said it had been done to protect United States' sovereignty and its right to choose where to have its embassy.
"Given the chance to vote again", said Haley to the Council, "I can say with complete confidence, we would vote no and exercise our veto power".
After the vote, Haley lashed out at the other members of the Council, calling the proceedings "an insult" that "won't be forgotten".
Since the advent of Trump's presidency, United States policy has grown increasingly hostile towards the Palestinian factions, edging closer in support of Israel.
"We declare our rejection of the United States as a political mediator because it has sided with Israel". But the Palestinians insist that East Jerusalem should be the capital of their future independent state.
The vetoed resolution would have demanded that all countries comply with 10 resolutions on Jerusalem, dating back to 1967, including requirements that the city's final status be decided in direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.
Amb. Matthew Rycroft, UK Permanent Representative to the United Nations, stated this ahead of the Security Council Briefing on the Middle East and vote on the draft resolution sponsored by Egypt.
Trump's declaration unleashed widespread anger and rallies within Palestine and in major cities across the world.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu immediately thanked Haley, posting on Twitter: "Truth defeated lies".
