The Israeli government has to say to the President-elect Trump the team for the support in the last days that you look forward to working with the next President, amid fraying relations with the outgoing administration.

Netanyahu said the US abstention, which allowed the U. N. resolution to pass, and like a “ambush”, and his government, in the meantime, the United States is accusing to play a hand in the orchestration of the voices.

In the hours before Kerry’s speech, the Netanyahu government has got another shot in the U.S., Public security Minister Gilad Erdan Kerry calls the speech a “pathetic move.”

He told the Israeli army Radio that “Kerry ‘ s intention, a chain of President-elect trump.”

The White house has pushed back, in which they argued that Obama helped administration, craft, and press the resolution – and on Wednesday morning, denied claims a report in the Egyptian media, Kerry and National security adviser Susan Rice discussed the U. N. resolution with a top Palestinian official, almost two weeks before Friday’s vote in the security Council.

Ned price, a spokesman for the U.S. National Security Council, called the reports a “fabrication” and the “encounter said never occurred.”

The State Department’s own website reflects that Kerry was scheduled to meet with the Palestinian official, to the State Department on Dec. 12, around the time of the discussions reported. The official website offers no details about what was discussed.
