US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the Israeli occupation has sparked outrage in the Arab and Muslim worlds. As the wave of anger intensified, the Security Council was forced to convene an emergency session, condemning the US decision.
The United Nations special coordinator for the Middle East peace process, Nikolai Mladenov, said the status of Jerusalem must be decided through negotiations, criticizing the US decision to consider the city as the capital of Israel.
Mladenov said at a UN Security Council meeting on Jerusalem, following US President Donald Trump’s decision, that the city is a symbol of the three religions – Islam, Christianity and Judaism.
Mladenov expressed “grave concern” at the dangers of escalating violence after Washington’s decision on Jerusalem, warning of “grave dangers of possible unilateral actions that keep us away from peace.”
