Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli prime minister, charged his ministers to not visit UN Security Council’s member countries, which supported the most recent resolution by the Council. The document, voted for on December 23, says that ‘creation of Israeli settlements in the territory of Palestine has no judicial power and is an outraging violation of the international right’. It was submitted by Malaysia, New Zealand, Senegal and Venezuela.

Reacting to that, Netanyahu ordered that for the next three weeks, members of his Cabinet avoid meeting counterparts from the 14 countries that supported the bill, including Ukraine; when Kyiv supported the resolution, the Israeli PM immediately canceled his Ukrainian counterpart’s visit to Israel. Netanyahu also said he’d skip his meeting with British Premier Theresa May in Davos in January 2017.
