The United States is disqualified as Middle East peace broker, says Palestinian U.N. envoy.

Speaking to a United Nations Security Council meeting on Friday (December 8), Palestinian U.N. Observer Riyad Mansour said, “The U.S. decision to reward Israelis impunity undermines and essentially disqualifies its leadership role to seek peace in the region.”

“One party cannot continue to monopolize the peace process, especially not one that acts with bias in favor of the occupying power at the expense of the law and the rights of the occupied people,” Mansour added.

On Wednesday, U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Israel considers all of Jerusalem to be its capital. Palestinians want the eastern part of the city as the capital of a future independent state of their own.

During the Security Council meeting, Israel’s Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon thanked the U.S. for putting “right these historic wrongs” and called on other nations to move their embassies to Jerusalem.
