UN did not recognize Jerusalem as Israeli capital - UPDATED


The UN General Assembly has passed a resolution that rejects US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, APA reports quoting Sputnik.

 

The UN General Assembly passed the resolution by a vote of 128 to 9 with 35 countries abstaining. The resolution condemns both US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel as well as Washington's decision to move its embassy to the ancient city.

 

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said before the vote to those at the meeting that Washington, the largest contributor to the international body, will remember the voting day.

 

President Donald Trump also threatened earlier in the day to withhold US aid to countries that voted in favor of the General Assembly resolution but stopped short of warning that US contributions to the United Nations itself would also be at stake.
