JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel looks forward to working with President-Elect Donald Trump to counter any effects of a United Nations Security Council resolution demanding a halt to settlement activity, a statement from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday.

"The Obama administration not only failed to protect Israel against this gang-up at the UN, it colluded with it behind the scenes," the statement said.

"Israel looks forward to working with President-elect Trump and with all our friends in Congress, Republicans and Democrats alike, to negate the harmful effects of this absurd resolution."
