a resolution the most recent being in november this year in which the general assembly voted overwhelmingly to declare any unilateral acts in jerusalem as null and void that phrase null and void is contained in the current draft resolution the draft resolution calls on all states to refrain from establishing diplomatic missions within jerusalem i understand the palestinians somewhat angered they didn't want to single out the u.s. by name however it appears from this draft resolution that egypt and the u.k. have had their way too in attempt to avoid the u.s. veto however it would appear that that vetoes likely to happen with israel's enthusiastic backing which describes the resolution as a palestinian attempt to reinvent history despite the fact that it is rooted on u.n. resolutions as they stand at present but palestinians making very clear that should

1:06 am
it is not much that i want all muslims to unite and to the president of america to reconsider his decision for the good of all of humanity. that's unlikely considering that trump says this is a recognition of reality that it's in the best interests of the u.s. in the israeli palestinian peace process but protesters don't see it that way in karachi thousands showed up for what was called the holy city million mark almost two weeks after trump's announcement people continue to show their solidarity for palestinians and in doing so i've also revived global attention to their plight natasha going to zero. russian president vladimir putin has phoned his u.s. counterpart donald trump to thank him for an intelligence tipoff from the cia that's believed to foil the series of ice or attacks russia's security services say

1:08 am
the optics this all comes in the middle of this investigation by special prosecutor robert mueller in two russian meddling into last year's election and what possible role the trump campaign might have made so you know it looks as if the two have a cozy relationship which makes it seem a little unusual at this time now president trump says this just demonstrates that even though these two companies these two countries have been adversaries that there are some things that they can work together on and i am what is known about these particular allegations against special pencil lead role that miller. well in attorney for president trump transition team has accused him of taking getting e-mails thousands of e-mails that he wasn't authorized to get that were traded between trump officials before the president and his administration took office last year now these e-mails were being held by the general services services
