New York, MINA – US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has sent a threatening letter to members of the UN General Assembly ahead of a vote on a draft resolution against the US recognition of Occupied Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, PIC reported.

In the letter, obtained by Haaretz newspaper, Haley wrote that US president Donald Trump “will be watching [Thursday’s] vote carefully” and “requested I report back on those who voted against us…”

The warning came after the US was outnumbered 14 to 1 as it vetoed a UN Security Council resolution on Monday against Trump’s decision on Jerusalem.

Trump announced on December 6 that the US formally recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and will begin the process of moving its embassy to the city, breaking with decades of US policy.(R/R04/RE1)
