TEHRAN, December 21 - The United Nations General Assembly approved a resolution rejecting U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's ‘capital’, as the U.N. envoy threatened the vote will determine how the U.S. looks "at countries who disrespect us at the U.N."

UN approves resolution rejecting US decision on Jerusalem al-QudsTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -The resolution was approved, with 128 yes votes, nine no votes and 35 abstentions.

U.S. President Donald Trump broke with longstanding U.S. policy earlier this month by saying the United States considers Jerusalem (al-Quds) the Israeli ‘capital’ and starting the process of moving the U.S. embassy there.

That announcement was met with a move in the U.N. Security Council on Monday to adopt a resolution noting its "deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem."

Fourteen of the council’s 15 members voted in favor of the draft resolution, but the United States used its veto power to block its adoption.
