Cotton: UN's Israel resolution could not have happened without US coordination

Sen. Tom CottonTom Bryant CottonBiden's Cabinet a battleground for future GOP White House hopefuls The Memo: GOP mulls its future after Trump O'Brien on 2024 talk: 'There's all kinds of speculation out there' MORE (R-Ark.) said Sunday that the United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements could only have been brought forward with coordination from the United States.

“It only could have been brought forward and passed with explicit United States coordination with other members of the Security Council,” Cotton told “Fox News Sunday.”

On Dec. 23, the U.N. Security Council voted 14-0 on a resolution condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The United States abstained from the vote, refusing to exercise its veto power.

The resolution has created backlash from Congressional Republicans and Israeli leaders who say it is anti-Israel.
