  • US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and US President's daughter Ivanka Trump unveil an inauguration plaque during the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem

Notably, Kenya was among 21 countries that failed to vote at the UN General Assembly in a resolution aimed at condemning Washington's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The talks opened at United Nations headquarters in NY with a moment of silence for the 60 Palestinians who died Monday, the majority killed by Israeli fire, in the bloodiest day in Gaza since 2014.

The Palestinian health ministry said more than 2,700 people had suffered injuries and that numerous dead had not yet been identified.

Pierce was echoed by Bolivia's envoy Sasha Llorenty who said that "the unilateral decision by the United States to move its embassy to Jerusalem does nothing but inflame spirits".

On Monday, an estimated 35,000 people participated in demonstrations in Gaza and hundreds of people in the West Bank cities of Ramallah, Bethlehem, Hebron, Jericho, Nablus, and East Jerusalem, as part of the "Great March of Return" as well as in protest of the relocation of the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, he said. They are hurting their own people. "Are these people honest?"

During these protests, dozens of Palestinians have been killed and thousands others wounded as Israeli forces continue to suppress the demonstrations.

Protesters burnt tyres, sending huge plumes of black smoke into the sky, threw stones and some of them brandished knives at Israeli soldiers, including snipers perched on earthworks.

He spoke to Melbourne Radio 3AW on Tuesday.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales were among officials attending an inauguration ceremony at the new embassy at an office park in the disputed city at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Relations with South Africa and Turkey are not that important to Israel, so if they "want their ambassadors back home, they are most welcome", former national security adviser Yaakov Amidror said on Tuesday.

In December past year, the African Union retaliated their support for Palestine in its quest for an independent and sovereign State with East Jerusalem as its capital.
