United Nations To Vote On Resolution To ‘Rescind’ US Recognition Of Jerusalem

The United Nations Security Council is set to vote Monday on a resolution calling for the withdrawal of President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The one-page draft resolution does not mention Trump or the U.S. by name, but expresses “deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem,” according to Reuters.

The council also “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status or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem have no legal effect, are null and void and must be rescinded in compliance with relevant resolutions of the Security Council.”
