Israel's Ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, gave an interview on Sunday morning to Israel's Reshet Bet radio station, making a statement regarding the most recent UN resolution against settlements construction in Israel.

"If the US would not have abstained in the vote, other countries would have followed suit and rejected the resolution against Israel," Danon stated.

"The Palestinians understand too that the move in the UN's Security Council is inefficient and the motives that triggered it are not practical," he added and want on to express his hope that things will change when President-elect Donald Trump will come into office in Januray. "I hope that the new government, headed by President-elect Donald Trump, will correct the damage that was now done and go on to support Israel."
