Former defense minister Moshe Ya'alon criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's handling of the United Nations Security Council resolution aftermath Wednesday during a speech at a conference organized by the economic newspaper Calcalist.

"Following the shameful decision of the Security Council, and America's deviation from its strong bond with Israel, both of which are worrisome, diplomatic maneuvering is required and not losing one's head and harming our own international relations with empty words of national pride," Ya'alon said. "We must speak to our friends around the world even when we disagree with them, and even when we're angry, and not boycott or punish them, which is shooting in our own goal. I have no doubt that more responsible leadership could have prevented [the resolution]."
