The UN General Assembly (UNGA) is holding a rare emergency meeting on the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The meeting is taking place at the request of Arab and Muslim nations, APA reports quoting Sputnik.


Speaking at the meeting, US envoy to the UN Nikki Haley said that whatever decision on Jerusalem status as the US capital is made by the UNGA, it will not influence Washington’s intention to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Haley noted that she expected UN respect to the US in return for the US’ generous contribution to the UN.


“When we make generous contributions to the UN, we also have a legitimate expectation that our goodwill is recognized and respected,” Haley said, adding that the vote will be “remembered” by the US,” Haley told the UN General Assembly, noting that "this vote will make a difference on how Americans look at the UN and on how we look at countries who disrespect us in the UN."
