The Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu said that his country «categorically rejects» the forthcoming UN General Assembly vote on the draft resolution on Jerusalem, calling the UN a «house of lies».

USA December 18, blocked the adoption of UN Security Council resolutions calling for the repeal of the decision on the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The special session of the UNGA, which will be submitted the draft resolution on Jerusalem, will take place on Thursday.

«Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, the UN recognizes it or not. It took 70 years to the United States have recognized this officially, and will take another years to and the UN is recognized. Attitude towards Israel from many countries of the world is changing outside the walls of the UN… which is a house of lies,» said Netanyahu during his speech in Ashdod. Video of the speech published by the Prime Minister’s office.

Netanyahu added that Israel does not recognize the voting in the UN General Assembly on Jerusalem and will continue building in this city. «Israel categorically rejects the vote before it took place. Jerusalem is our capital, we will continue to build there, and the embassies of other countries in Israel will be transferred to Jerusalem,» said Israeli Prime Minister.

Netanyahu also thanked again the President of the United States Donald trump and the permanent U.S. representative to the UN Nikki Haley’s support for Israel, stressing that ultimately «truth will prevail».

In early December, trump announced the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and signed a document about the transfer of the us Embassy there from tel Aviv. The decision of the us leader was well received in Israel and aroused a negative reaction from many countries, primarily countries in the Middle East and Palestine.
