Trump vs. Mueller: Mike Allen on what you need to know

Trump vs. Mueller: Mike Allen on what you need to know

Jerusalem's status has always been considered a final status issue to be determined by Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, and Trump's decision is widely seen as undercutting that longstanding understanding.

"The United States will not be told by any country where we can put our embassy", Haley told the council after the veto.

In a statement, the ministry expressed "support to voices calling on the Palestinians to head to gain support of the UN General Assembly after the failure of the Security Council to annul the American decision".

Ahead of the vote, Haley said the Security Council was putting peace out of reach by "injecting itself" into the conflict and passing judgment on issues that should be decided by direct negotiation between the parties.

Trump's December 6 decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital and start lengthy preparations to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv has been criticized by all the Arab countries and many U.S. allies, including fellow Security Council members France and Britain.

The draft also calls upon all countries to refrain from establishing diplomatic missions in Jerusalem.

The big picture: The events of the last two weeks around Trump's Jerusalem announcement are the biggest crisis between the US and the Palestinians since the height of the second Intifada in 2002.

Recognition of this fact by the U.S. Congress in 1995 and the U.S. president this week is just acknowledging reality.

Britain and France both said they would vote in favor of the resolution.

"What we witnessed here today in the Security Council is an insult". He said that "no such steps" had been taken by Israel.

While U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley did not say how Washington would vote, she said after Mladenov's briefing that the United States would not make the same mistake it made a year ago.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked Haley and Trump in a Facebook video, saying: "You lit a candle of truth".

"The worldwide community must work now to protect the Palestinian people", Nabil Abu Rudeina told AFP news agency.

The Palestinian delegation to the U.N.is now instead seeking a vote in the 193-member General Assembly on the US decision on Jerusalem.

"The United States choose not to be an honest mediator in the peace process".

He also thanked the USA for "standing with Israel and staying loyal to the truth".
