about the risk of a violent escalation following the u.s. decision to recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel he told a gathering of the u.n. security council at the move might trigger you know a lot of the actions which would make a peace deal harder to reach the security council meeting was requested by britain and france and half a dozen other countries. there's a palestinian ambassador to the u.n. riyadh months or to say about trump's titian. going to be really. or do but and is the this decision by the u.s. should be. should be. loosened a monitoring that emergency u.n. security council meeting is to w.'s carson vaughn naaman carson thanks for joining us. carson the closest allies the u.s. were among those who called for this special session one of they've been saying.
8:03 pm
it was quite remarkable even the ambassador of the united kingdom maybe the closest ally of the u.s. on the world stage was very critical saying that his government still believed that jerusalem should be the capital of both the israelis and the palestinians eventually when there is a final settlement and he also criticized the decision therefore of the united states and said britain had no plans to move its own embassy there the ambassador for the united states at the u.n. security council nikki haley meanwhile once again repeated the line of argument of the white house saying that basically the u.s. government was only accepting or acknowledging the reality on the ground that the parliament and the government of israel already in jerusalem so they were just basically accepting that and also she said that israel like any other country had
8:04 pm
the right to choose its own capital of course that point in particular was rejected by a number of members of the security council the swedish u.n. ambassador for instance pointed out that several resolutions of the u.n. security council have stated that the annexation of east jerusalem was illegal and that the declaration of jerusalem as israel's capital was not an void. we had a sound bite i believe from nikki haley she seems to be doubling down as you explain on this decision let's pull that up. the united states has not taken a position on boundaries or borders the specific dimensions of sovereignty over jerusalem are still to be decided by the israelis and the palestinians in negotiation israel will never be and should never be bullied into an agreement by the united nations or by any collection of countries that have proven disregard for
8:05 pm
israel's security as israel should not be bullied what was the reaction to that statement carsten. nikki haley went even further actually criticize the united nations saying that sometimes they had done more harm than good to the peace process and that america would not be lectured by others all that what she said i think didn't go down well with the palestinians in particular and many arabs have been suspecting for some time that the u.s. were not a neutral mediator but actually pretty much on the side of the israelis and what nikki haley said today probably. reconfirmed those suspicions it's not like america is now a pariah was something i actually saw in nikki haley talking to the palestinian delegation just before the start of the security council session but also the palestinians didn't mince their words their ambassador who was also allowed to

8:07 pm
and israel. but in egypt long seen as a u.s. and israeli ally there were mass protests as well these demonstrators are chanting jerusalem is arab. the alamo a set that i'm woman with trumps needs to know that palestine is in the hearts of all the arabs muslims and every free person in this world and in some sort of you has either. but the outrage spread beyond israel's neighboring countries from the streets of the somali capital mogadishu to the mountains of kashmir. was let alone was. enough and in pakistan trump a decision seemed to trigger a general backlash by the judge that trump is a madman the american people must take a stand and make it clear that they do not stand with trump otherwise we are left

8:13 pm
needed two months to disagree of the about everything so. two or three weeks time to check if it makes sense to build to continue on the basis of a system of program incorporating i think that's justify them and where justified for us. one of your key proposals is that idea of a united states of europe but wouldn't it be also important to focus on a united s.p.d. given the fact that so many delegates here seem to be against that idea of another grand coalition i think. proposal tables yesterday by the bureau of the party unanimously adopted in the bureau of the party for the opening of negotiations first of all about content to improving the internal situation the best execution in germany improving the situation of the european union and got an overwhelming
