Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered during the cabinet weekly meeting late Sunday to reduce all diplomatic relations with 12 of the countries that voted in favor of UNSC settlement resolution.

According to Haaretz Hebrew newspaper, Netanyahu instructed his government to reduce ties with countries that backed the UN anti-settlement resolution.

Earlier Sunday, Netanyahu decided not to declare future settlement plans to avoid any new UN resolutions.

The UN Security Council voted last week in favor of a resolution demanding a halt to Israel’s settlement activity in the West Bank, with no votes against, and the United States notably abstaining.

The resolution calls the Israeli settlements a violation of international law and an obstacle to implementing a two-state solution.
