Turkey says regrets to see veto of United Nations resolution on Jerusalem

The mayor thus expressed their protest against the decision of the President of the United States Donald trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The draft resolution put to vote on Monday is in line with previous Security Council resolutions and is a continuation of the contents and spirit of past resolutions, said Wu, explaining China's "yes" vote on the draft resolution.

Russian Federation is offering to play the role of an "honest moderator" in the Israel-Palestine conflict after the United States vetoed a UN Security Council resolution, which was supported by 14 nations of the 15-member body. Israel captured Arab East Jerusalem in 1967 and later annexed it in an action not recognized internationally.

Riyad H. Mansour, Permanent Observer for the State of Palestine, said it is reprehensible that the United States has chosen to disregard global law and undermine its own role in any future peace process.

A communique issued after the summit said the participants considered the move to be a declaration that Washington was withdrawing from its role "as sponsor of peace" in the Middle East.

With all the other 14 members of the Council, including its allies Britain and France, lining up against the US, Permanent Representative Nikki Haley cast the veto-powered negative vote killing the resolution on Monday.

Jerusalem was key for peace, he stressed.

Haley said Trump "took great care not to prejudge final status negotiations in any way, including the specific boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem", which must be decided by the Israelis and Palestinians.

Trump abruptly reversed decades of U.S. policy this month when he recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital, generating outrage from Palestinians and the Arab world and concern among Washington's western allies.

With the Palestinians rejecting USA mediation, Russian Federation said it was ready to take over.

Backed by Muslim countries, the Palestinians are expected to turn to the UN General Assembly to adopt a resolution rejecting the USA decision, if, as expected, the measure is vetoed by the United States at the council. "It is one more example of the United Nations doing more harm than good in addressing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict", she said on the draft resolution that would have called upon all states to refrain from establishing diplomatic missions in Jerusalem. "The record will reflect that we did so proudly", the Indian-origin U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations said. The lack of significant steps on the ground that protect the viability of a two-state solution and support Palestinian statehood is undermining moderates and empowering radicals, he warned.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked the US for using its veto in a video posted to Facebook.

In Netanyahu's words, "One defeated the many, truth defeated lies".
