PM Benjamin Netanyahu sends a Skype 'thanks!" to US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley over veto of anti-Jerusalem resolution on Dec. 18, 2017

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had high praise for U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Monday night after she vetoed a UN Security Council resolution that would have attempted to require President Donald Trump to rescind his recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, advanced by Egypt.

Similarly, Israel’s Ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, praised Haley, noting that just a year ago in the same chamber, “14 countries voted for a shameful resolution. The US abstained – the resolution passed. Today, 14 countries voted for another shameful resolution. This time the US vetoed.

“Thank you Amb @nikkihaley for your courageous stance,” Danon tweeted.
