E-mail Print PDF

Gaza1June3NEW YORK (PNIC):-US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has sent a threatening letter to members of the UN General Assembly ahead of a vote on a draft resolution against the US recognition of Occupied Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

In the letter, obtained by Haaretz newspaper, Haley wrote that US president Donald Trump "will be watching [Thursday's] vote carefully" and "requested I report back on those who voted against us…"

The warning came after the US was outnumbered 14 to 1 as it vetoed a UN Security Council resolution on Monday against Trump's decision on Jerusalem.

Trump announced on December 6 that the US formally recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and will begin the process of moving its embassy to the city, breaking with decades of US policy.
