Trump's failure in United Nations over Jerusalem a 'gift to Iran'

News of the leaner operations comes days after a widespread rebuke by United Nations member countries on President Trump's controversial decision to deem Jerusalem the capital of Israel.

Despite the threats by Trump, 128 countries supported the resolution, with 35 abstaining and 9 voting against it. Trump's threat appears to have had some kind of impact with multiple countries like Australia abstaining from the vote.

The countries that voted against the resolution were the U.S., Israel, Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Togo and Palau.

President Donald Trump and Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley during a high-level meeting on UN reform convened by the United States on September 18. "We don't care", he added.

"Well, we're watching those votes". Erdoğan added that the call to the U.S.to nullify the vote would continue and responded to a question whether he will be discussing the matter with Trump any time soon; he said Turkey has called on the U.S.to discuss the matter with them, as Ankara is the term president of the OIC, however, it has not yet happened. We'll save a lot.

On Sunday, the United States applauded a $285 million cut that had been made in the U.N.'s core budget, after the General Assembly adopted a $5.396 billion budget for 2018-2019, just below the $5.4 billion that UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres had sought.

"Whether there actual bias or not, we will only know in the end", he said.

President Donald Trump should have called him before the Jerusalem decision, amid Trump's move to recognize the holy city as Israel's capital and a United Nations resolution denouncing his decision, Hurriyet writes.

In a post on Facebook on Sunday, Morales said that after talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he made a decision to instruct Guatemala's foreign ministry to move the embassy. "Israel has established very good relations with some central and South American countries".

On December 18, the Washington Post stated that Nikki Haley's and Trump's choice at the Security Council to veto the Egyptian resolution, facing another fourteen countries "underscores the USA isolation on the issue". The main reason for the success of the resolution against Trump was the Jerusalem is a holy site for multiple religions and recognising it as the capital of Israel would make it a de facto Jewish city. No such steps should be allowed that would hamper peace and stability in the Middle East and deprive the people of Palestine of their rights."India has traditionally and consistently considered East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine and India's support to the UNGA resolution re-affirms that stand and commitment".
