14 UN Security Council members against Trump's move on Jerusalem


Representatives of fourteen countries in the UN Security Council have condemned the decision taken by US President Donald Trump recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

They expressed this view at an emergency meeting of the Council held on Friday. They expressed their sentiments vehemently- some in a note of regret, while others in a note of anger.

Ambassadors from France, Italy, Germany, Sweden and Britain in a joint statement expressed disagreement with US President Trump's decision. "It is not in line with Security Council resolutions and is unhelpful in terms of prospects for peace in the region," they pointed out.
