Gaza6Dec8OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-The UN Security Council is set to hold an emergency meeting on the recognition by the US of Jerusalem al-Quds as the “capital” of Israel as world leaders and political figures continue to censure Washington’s highly contentious move.

Diplomats said the session will be held on Friday at the request of eight member states of the 15-member council, including France, Bolivia, Egypt, Italy, Senegal, Sweden, Britain and Uruguay.

The eight have also asked UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to officially open the meeting.

“The UN has given Jerusalem [al-Quds] a special legal and political status, which the Security Council has called upon the international community to respect. That is why we believe the Council needs to address this issue with urgency,” Deputy Swedish UN Ambassador Carl Skau said.

Bolivian Ambassador Sacha Sergio Llorenty Soliz called US President Donald Trump’s move “a reckless and a dangerous decision which violates international law and the resolutions of the Security Council.”

Trump on Wednesday defied global warnings and said the US formally recognizes Jerusalem al-Quds as the “capital” of Israel, and will begin the process of moving its embassy to the occupied city, breaking with decades of American policy.

The announcement has triggered a chorus of condemnations from around the world.
