US vetoes UN resolution rejecting Trump's Jerusalem decision
December 19, 2017  00:19
The United States today vetoed a draft United Nations resolution rejecting President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital, after all 14 other Security Council members backed the measure.

The lone veto cast by US Ambassador Nikki Haley highlighted Washington's isolation over Trump's announcement that the US embassy will be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, effectively ignoring Palestinian claims on the city. -- Agencies
