TEL AVIV, Israel — Israel on Tuesday curtailed relations with 10 countries that voted in favor of a recent U.N. Security Council resolution condemning settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem.
The United States broke with past practice by allowing the Security Council to pass the measure that called settlement building on land claimed by the Palestinians a “flagrant violation” of international law, sparking fury in Israel.
In a statement, Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said Israel was limiting its “work contacts with the 10 relevant embassies here, as well as travels of officials from Israel to those countries … until otherwise decided.”
These countries were Britain, France, Russia, China, Japan, Ukraine, Angola, Egypt, Uruguay and Spain.
