Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu chose to focus on the positive aspects, Thursday, following an overwhelming vote against US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as ISrael's capital.

"Israel rejects the UN decision, but at the same time expresses satisfaction with the number of countries that did not vote in favor of the resolution," the Prime Minister's Office said in a statement, noting that they were  countries that  Netanyahu has visited in Europe, Africa and Latin America.

"Israel thanks President Trump for his unequivocal position in favor of Jerusalem and thanks those countries that voted alongside Israel, alongside the truth," the statement said.
