new york - The United States will establish their embassy in Jerusalem. 'Not a single vote in the United Nations will change that,' said US UN envoy Nikki Haley in response to the vote of the UN General Assembly on the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by the US.
With 128 votes, the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was rejected. The resolution states that the Americans must reverse their decision, although the resolution is not legally binding under international law. 'The only thing that this UN vote is for is that Americans look differently at the UN and against countries in the UN that do not respect us,' Haley said.
