Four Pacific nations sided with U.S. and Israel on U.N.'s Jerusalem vote

The seven countries that sided Thursday with the United States and Israel on a U.N. General Assembly resolution declaring “null and void” President Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital are all small and obscure as world players.

The countries include:

1. Guatemala 

2. Honduras

3. Marshall Islands

4. Micronesia

5. Nauru

6. Palau

7. Togo

Most of these nations are tiny islands in the Pacific. 

Four of the countries — Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru and Palau — have combined populations less than Boise, Idaho. Nauru, for example, has a population of 10,000. 

Another 35 nations abstained from the 128-9 vote. Two are the United States closest neighbors, Canada and Mexico. The others are allies across the globe. 

Here's the list:

1. Antigua-Barbuda

2. Argentina

3. Australia

4. Bahamas

5. Benin

6. Bhutan

7. Bosnia-Herzegovina

8. Cameroon
