President Reuven Rivlin stated on Tuesday that the "united Jerusalem is Israel's eternal capital and so it shall always be, there is no international body that has the power to change that fact."

Rivlin's words come as a reaction to the anti-settlements resolution the UN's Security Council passed last Friday.
Referring directly to the vote (from which the US chose to abstain), Rivlin said: "The Security Council's vote was a blow to the peace process and a blow to our trust."
