The United States will oppose any efforts to codify a resolution that may emerge from the Middle East peace conference in Paris on Sunday into a UN Security Council resolution, US Secretary of State John Kerry told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a phone conversation.

Israeli sources said that Kerry called Netanyahu from the conference on Sunday to brief him on the efforts the US was taking at the conference to soften the language of the final resolution.

According to the sources, Netanyahu told Kerry that damage has already been caused to Israel by the anti-settlement resolution that the US allowed to pass in the Security Council last month, and that no more harm should be allowed to be caused to Israel from the Paris summit.

Kerry, the sources said, assured Netanyahu that there would be no follow-up to the Paris conference in the UN Security Council.
