Israeli Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that he will reassess his country’s relations with the United Nationa after the Security Council adopted a resolution to stop the building of illegal settlements on Palestinian territory.

“I instructed the foreign ministry to complete within a month a re-evaluation of all our contacts with the United Nations, including the Israeli funding of UN institutions and the presence of UN representatives in Israel,” Netanyahu said on Saturday.

On Friday, the UNSC Resolution 2334 was passed with 14 votes in favor and one abstention — by the US. It condemned the establishment of settlements by Israel in the occupied Palestinian territories a “flagrant violation under international law,” which it said was “dangerously imperiling the viability” of peace and the establishment of a Palestinian state.

“The decision that was taken was biased and shameful, but we will withstand it,” added Netanyahu. “I have already instructed to stop about 30m shekels ($7.8m) in funding to five UN institutions, five bodies, that are especially hostile to Israel … and there is more to come,” he added.
