Trump, Russia Opposed Obama-Era UN Resolution on Israel, Transcript Shows
Russia did not support a UN Security Council Resolution that the Obama administration considered pushing in order to force parameters for a peace agreement on Israel and the Palestinians, as indicated by recently declassified phone conversations between US President Donald Trump's former adviser Michael Flynn and Russia's ambassador to the US at the time, Sergey Kislyak.
The resolution included a Palestinian state based on pre-1967 borders, and was “more like what the Palestinians want and very far from the Trump plan,” according to a source close to the matter.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu enlisted then-president-elect Donald Trump and his staff to try to block the Resolution, and ultimately convinced Russian President Vladimir Putin to threaten a veto. The resolution was never actually submitted to the UNSC because it had no chance of passing. (JPost / VFI News)
