Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu approved a request from the president of the republic of Nauru and donated the country a $72,000 wastewater treatment plant.
To return the favor, Nauru was among the nine UN members who voted against the UN resolution to condemn US President Trump’s decision on Jerusalem, Ynet reported Thursday.
The countries that voted in favor of Israel were Nauru, Palau, Togo, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Guatemala, and Honduras, Israel and of course the US.
Notes supporting the prime minister’s decision said that the President of the State of Nauru asked the Prime Minister for assistance in the form of a sewage treatment plant adapted to the “island’s unique needs.”
The same committee approved gifting India a $115,000 mobile desalination plant to India. However, India voted against Israel at the UN vote last week.
