The relationship between the States deteriorated sharply after the UN General Assembly in Kiev voted against Israel’s right to build settlements in the Palestinian territories. Of the 15 members of the UN security Council only the US abstained. 14 States, including Ukraine, voted for the resolution – not in favor of Israel. The arguments of the Ukrainian foreign Ministry, the Israeli side has not considered.

We will remind, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution that recognizes Israel’s illegal settlements in the Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem. Such a resolution was adopted for the first time thanks to the U.S. delegation, which did not veto, as before, and merely abstained.

In the final document urge Israel to cease the construction of settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory. Such settlements are called “a flagrant violation of international law” and such, that have no legal force. The security Council demanded that Israel immediately cease settlement activity.

Israel, in turn, refused to recognize the resolution and accused the Obama administration into agreements with the UN behind of tel Aviv. In a statement on behalf of the government of Benjamin Netanyahu says that Israel intends to cooperate with the administration of Donald trump and congressmen to “avoid the consequences of this absurd resolution.”

24 December, Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu canceled an official visit to the country, Prime Minister of Ukraine Vladimir Groisman.
