America will make good on its vow to remember nations that did not rebuke the Trump administration for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said Tuesday.

The United States will hold a reception for the countries that refused to condemn America for reversing decades of its policy in the region, she announced.

"As I said in December, we won't forget the Jerusalem vote," Haley said at a news conference, The Hill reported.

"To that end, [Wednesday] night, we are having a reception for the countries who chose not to oppose the U.S. position [on Jerusalem]."

The U.N. General Assembly voted overwhelmingly last month to condemn the Trump administration's announcement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital — despite pressure from Haley and President Donald Trump.

U.S. allies voting in favor of the resolution were the United Kingdom, France, and Germany. Others, like Canada, Australia, and Mexico, abstained, The Hill noted.

The nine countries to vote against the resolution were the United States, Israel, Honduras, Guatemala, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, and Togo.
