US Failed to Threaten UNSC Members Not to Adopt Pro-Palestinian Resolution

US Failed to Threaten UNSC Members Not to Adopt Pro-Palestinian Resolution

 

Alwaght- Prior to recent UN General Assembly session, the US has reportedly  threatened members of the world body to prevent them from adopting a resolution critical of Trump's decision to recognize al-Quds as Israeli regime's capital.

On Tuesday, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, in a letter to the world body’s member states, warned that Washington would remember those who voted for the measures.

“The president will be watching this vote carefully and has requested I report back on those countries who voted against us. We will take note of each and every vote on this issue,” read the letter seen by Reuters.

She also echoed the warning in a Twitter post, saying, the US will be “taking names” of the countries that support the resolution.

The US threats, however, failed to intimidate the UNSC's members and 14 out of 15 members of the world body voted in favor of the resolution making the US to use its veto power to block the Egypt-drafted document.

Arab and Muslim states have requested that the 193-nation assembly hold an emergency special meeting on US President Donald Trump’s decision days after Washington vetoed the resolution.
