Netanyahu canceled a visit Groisman due to the Ukraine voting for anti-Israel resolution

Нетаньяху отменил визит Гройсмана из-за голосования Украины за антиизраильскую резолюцию

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has decided to cancel the visit of the Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, who was to arrive in Israel next week. It is reported by Haaretz, citing a source in the high circles of Israel.

It is noted that the decision was taken in light of the Ukraine voting in favor of the resolutions of the Security Council of the United Nations on Friday to ban the construction of settlements in Palestine.

Yesterday, on December 23, the UN security Council adopted a resolution which stated that Israel’s building of settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory “has no legal effect and constitutes a flagrant violation of international law.” It was supported by 14 members of the security Council, including Ukraine. USA, who have previously blocked such projects, abstained.

The authors of the document are Malaysia, New Zealand, Senegal and Venezuela.

Donald trump has reacted to the resolution in the UN security Council a message that after his inauguration on January 20, “it’s all there will be different”.

Recall, December 19, Israel supported the General Assembly resolution according to which Russia recognized the aggressor state, and Crimea – temporarily occupied territory.

Israel considers all of Jerusalem its capital. At the same time, the Palestinians view East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state.
