UN: Trump has 'courage and true understanding of justice' — Israeli envoy Danon

UN Security Council widely condemned the decision of the US President Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel during an emergency meeting in New York on Friday. UN's special coordinator for the Middle East Nickolay Mladenov said that Trump’s move may «seriously undermine current peace efforts and may have repercussions across the region.» UK ambassador Matthew Rycroft... Еще expressed a similar position, saying that «these decisions are unhelpful to the prospects for peace in the region.» Russia's envoy Vasily Nebenzya called upon the parties involved in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to «refrain from actions that may have dangerous und uncontrollable consequences.» Palestinian ambassador to the UN Riyad Mansour noted that Trump’s administration «has heightened tensions and risks the complete destabilisation of this volatile situation.» However, Israel’s representative Danny Danon rejected the criticism, saying, «The United States has the courage and true understanding of justice to officially state what has always been known: that Jerusalem has and always will be the capital of Israel.» Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday in a live televised address from Washington DC. He also began the process of moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv.
