US Secretary of State John Kerry will make remarks regarding Middle East peace on Wednesday and discuss next steps needed to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, State Department spokesman Mark Toner said on Tuesday.

Toner rejected claims that the Obama administration had pushed for a United Nations Security Council resolution demanding an end to Israeli settlement building. The United States abstained in the Security Council decision, which passed with 14 votes in favor.

"There was nothing pre-cooked, this was not some move orchestrated by the United States," Toner said.

Following the controversial move at the UNSC, Jerusalem lashed out at the Obama administration, accusing Washington of stabbing "Israel in the back."

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later said that his government "rejects the anti-Israel resolution at the United Nations," calling the motion "shameful."

"The Obama administration not only failed to protect Israel against the UN's obsession with Israel, it collaborated with the UN behind Israel's back," Netanyahu said in a statement following the vote.

"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," he added.
