The United Nations Security Council will vote on Monday on a proposed resolution rejecting American recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city.

The proposal was introduced by Egypt، while the Palestinian Authority urged Arab states to push for the measure following President Trump’s announcement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and ordering the State Department to begin work relocating the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

On Saturday، Egypt circulated a draft of the proposed resolution to the representatives of the 15-member council.

According to Reuters، the one-page proposal does not name either the United States or the Trump administration، but would declare “null and void” all actions ‘to alter the character of Jerusalem.

The draft proposes that "any decisions and actions which purport to have altered، the character، status or demographic composition" of Jerusalem would "have no legal effect، are null and void and must be rescinded in compliance with relevant resolutions of the Security Council."
