UN Votes Today On Trump’s Jerusalem Decision
Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the American embassy to city will face a popularity test on Monday at the United Nations.
The United Nations Security Council will vote on a draft resolution calling for the withdrawal of U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
The one-page Egyptian-drafted text, seen by Reuters, does not specifically mention the United States or Trump.
Diplomats say it has broad support among the 15-member council, and while it is unlikely to be adopted, the vote will further isolate Trump on the issue.
To pass, a resolution needs nine votes in favour and no vetoes by the United States, France, Britain, Russia or China.
Arab foreign ministers agreed to seek a U.N. Security Council resolution on the issue. The draft U.N. text expresses “deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem.”
It "affirms that any decisions and actions which purport to have altered, the character, status or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem, have no legal effect, are null and void and must be rescinded in compliance with relevant resolutions of the Security Council".
