Haley also said the Trump administration intends to follow through on its decision to move the us embassy in Israel to Jerusalem despite opposition from the Palestinians.

Palestinian spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina said Abbas would center his speech around "Al-Quds", or Jerusalem, and on basic Palestinian principles.

"Today there was a reaction from the Palestinian people and popular activists, a reaction to this dishonourable and bad reception" by the polling company, Khawaja said.

However, Abbas did not see Haley's wrath as he left the chamber after he addressed the Security Council.

The gathering should lead to full United Nations membership for the state of Palestine, mutual recognition of Israel and Palestine, and the creation of a new global mechanism to reach a final settlement, he said.

Haley, who arrived at the meeting with Kushner and Middle East Envoy Jason Greenblatt, also called on Abbas to get past his rejection of the US' stance to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital, telling him that decision will not change.

Abbas was the last to arrive in the Security Council, and he left immediately after his speech to attend a reception hosted by the Palestinians, avoiding any direct contact with the Americans or Israelis.

"Today, the situation of the US and Israel indicate their fear of the Zionist regime's collapse and the USA decline".

The team also come up with a couple of changes that SA supporter think that will work because they seem to have she mounted up. Chahal leaked 64 runs in his quota of four overs - most by an Indian bowler (going past Joginder Sharma's tally of 0 for 57).

Outlining his peace plan, Abbas said that besides the global conference, its other two elements were requiring all parties to not take any action that prejudges the outcome of the negotiations, and Palestine's refraining from joining other worldwide organisations.

Following the declaration, the Palestinian Authority said that the U.S. is no longer fit to mediate in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, while the USA threatened to cut off UNRWA funding for Palestinian refugees, and to any country that votes against the Jerusalem resolution at the United Nations.

Abbas said the conference would be attended by Israel and the Palestinians, regional players, the five permanent Security Council members - Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States - and the diplomatic Quartet comprised of the European Union, Russia, US and the United Nations.

Nevertheless, Rumley believes that the global community harbors no aspirations to take on the mantle of Middle East peace, and that the role of the United States will remain in place.

"Mr. Abbas, you have made it clear with your words and with your actions that you are no longer part of the solution", he said. "Once again he is running away", Danon said.

But gaps to bridge remained seemingly before peace talks could reconvene, as Haley had alluded to in her speech dismissing "old talking points and undeveloped concepts". "We will present it when it is done and the time is right".

"Our negotiators are sitting behind me", she said.

Israeli forces rounded up 20 Palestinians in overnight raids across the Israeli-occupied West Bank, according to the Israeli military on Wednesday.
