The U.S. on Monday vetoed a UN Security Council resolution that rejects the establishment of diplomatic facilities in the contested city of Jerusalem, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

 

The move comes less than two weeks after Washington moved to recognize the holy city as Israel's capital and begin the process to move its embassy there from Tel Aviv -- the city where all other nations house their main diplomatic facilities.

 

The U.S. is one of the five permanent members of the council, and has the right to veto any resolutions it chooses.
