The Jerusalem Post is broadcasting live US President Donald Trump's address to  the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday. The United States currently holds the rotating presidency of the Security Council.


Trump is expected to address rising tensions between the United States and Iran, as Trump himself alluded to in a post on Twitter last week. "I will Chair the United Nations Security Council meeting on Iran next week!" Trump said.


In his speech to the UN General Assembly Tuesday, Trump said that the US will pursue a peace agreement between Israelis and Palestinians that breaks with traditions from past diplomatic efforts.

Addressing the body for the second time, Trump defended his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as a move in advancement of peace. The policy announcement in December prompted a rare rebuke of the US from General Assembly members.
