Zarif hails UN vote against US embassy decisionTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - “A resounding global NO to Trump regime’s thuggish intimidation at #UN,” Zarif wrote in his official tweeter page.

The United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly voted in favor of a resolution that calls on the US to withdraw its controversial recognition of Jerusalem al-Quds as Israeli "capital."

The 193-nation assembly adopted the resolution on Thursday by a decisive vote of 128 to 9, with 35 abstentions.

Before the vote was held at the General Assembly, Trump had warned that "we're watching," threatening reprisals against countries that back the Jerusalem al-Quds resolution.

A spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas also welcomed the Thursday development, Presstv reported.
