New Zealand won't bow to United States over Jerusalem - Prime Minister

The Prime Minister insists New Zealand will not be influenced by President Donald Trump over Jerusalem.

Tomorrow, United Nations members will vote on a resolution to demand all countries comply with pre-existing UN resolutions on Jerusalem.

The vote comes after Mr Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and said the US Embassy will be moved to the city from Tel Aviv.

Ahead of the vote, Mr Trump has threatened to cut aid to countries that vote in favour of the motion.

US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has warned she'll be taking names of all who vote in favour.

But Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says the threats will not influence New Zealand's position on Jerusalem.

"We have always supported a two-state solution, we will continue to hold our position based on principle, regardless of what any other nation says," she told Newshub.

"We make our own choices, we take our own position, and we've stood up to people before when they've had a different view - you only need to look at things like nuclear free."

In a UN Security Council meeting on Monday, 13 of 14 members supported the resolution, but the US used its power of veto to reject it.
