Kerry de­fends UN set­tle­ment move

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Sec­re­tary of State John Kerry on Wed­nes­day de­fended last week’s move to al­low the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil to de­clare Is­raeli set­tle­ments il­le­gal, a spark that set off an ex­tra­or­di­nary and deep­en­ing diplo­matic spat be­tween the US and its clos­est Mid­dle East ally. Mean­while, US pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump ac­cused the cur­rent ad­min­is­tra­tion of treat­ing Is­rael with “to­tal dis­dain” and promised his sup­port when he is in­au­gu­rated on Jan 20.
