Israel 'will never be driven from Jerusalem,' envoy tells UN

HaleyHaley: "Open question" if USA athletes will attend Olympics amid North Korea tensions Haley: Trump isn't deciding who controls east Jerusalem Emergency UN Security Council meeting called after Trump's Jerusalem announcement: report MORE warned Thursday that a United Nations resolution condemning the Trump administration's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital would damage Washington's relationship with the global body.

United States permanent envoy to the UN Nikki Haley declared that the U.S. will "take names" to shame those countries who oppose the USA position on Jerusalem.

'We will take note of each and every vote on this issue, ' she wrote to several United Nations ambassadors.

The UN General Assembly will vote Thursday on the resolution, prompting intense backlash from the USA delegation.

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 long-standing understanding. In January, when she assumed her new United Nations role, she showed her hand, warning U.S. allies that if they do not support Washington, there would be repercussions.

It does not mention Trump´s decision but expresses "deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem".

Palestinian envoy said he hopes there will be overwhelming support in the General Assembly for the resolution.

"The United States missed an opportunity to reverse its decision, ignoring the calls of the worldwide community to respect global legitimacy", he said.

No country has veto powers in the General Assembly, contrary to the council where the United States, along with Britain, China, France and Russian Federation, can block any resolution.

"With this statement, the US President Trump's threat to countries that vote against the US on Jerusalem is not acceptable".

Trump's December 6 decision to recognize Jerusalem broke with worldwide consensus, triggering protests across the Muslim world and drawing strong condemnation.

After that vote, Haley described the 14-1 vote "an insult" and warned 'it won't be forgotten'. "We don't care", he said in the White House.

There should be an Arab state of Palestine - and there will be when the Arabs fully accept Israel as a Jewish state. East Jerusalem, which Palestinians are seeking to make the capital of their state, has been under Israeli occupation since 1967.
