Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmed Abu Zeid said that the resolution reflects the global community's rejection to U.S. President Donald Trump's decision that aims at changing the status of Jerusalem.

Palestinian Ambassador Riyad Mansour told reporters after meeting with the General Assembly president that he expects a vote this week.

Despite the barrage of criticism regarding the US's waning role, the Trump administration has continuously reaffirmed its commitment to the Middle East peace process going so far as stating that within the context of the Jerusalem declaration, "there is a very good opportunity for peace to be achieved".

On what happens if the USA vetoes the resolution, Rycroft said the US could speak for itself that they would be vetoing the text because it was not in line with its own position.

US President Donald Trump revealed his new strategic plan noting that for many generations, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been interpreted as the main factor preventing peace in the region. Israel captured Arab East Jerusalem in 1967 and later annexed it in an action not recognized internationally.

He said "a insane person wouldn't accept" that role for Washington after Trump's action.

Trump has tasked his son-in-law Jared Kushner with mediating peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

Nine votes in favour plus the support of all five veto-wielding members of the council were needed to pass the resolution.

British Ambassador Matthew Rycroft said, "The status of Jerusalem should be determined through a negotiated settlement between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and should ultimately be the shared capital of the Israeli and Palestinian states".

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas the USA should no longer be involved in brokering a Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement.

"We are ready to become an honest mediator here", he said.

"The United States will not be told by any country where we can put our embassy", she said after the veto.

The draft resolution had included a call on all countries to refrain from opening embassies in Jerusalem, reflecting concerns that other governments could follow the United States lead.

The vetoed resolution would also have reiterated a call to reverse "the negative trends on the ground that are imperiling the two-state solution" that would see the states of Israel and the Palestine living side-by-side in peace.

Briefing the Security Council ahead of the vote, Nickolay Mladenov, the United Nations special coordinator for Middle East peace, said escalations in violence in the region could not be divorced from unilateral actions that undermined the peace process.

And then hope that PA President Mahmoud Abbas - the guy who premised his Ph.D. thesis on denying the existence of the Holocaust - will "control" Hamas, the virulently anti-Semitic offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, which in its 1988 charter - and affirmed every year to this very day - refuses to recognize the State of Israel's right to exist and is committed to jihad to destroy every last vestige of Israel and every Jew on earth.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked Haley and Trump for the veto in a video clip posted on his Facebook page. One defeated the many.
