Outcome of Security Council voting stresses int’l community rejection of U.S. decision: Al-Momani

Amman- Minister of State for Media Affairs and Government Spokesperson, Mohammad Al- Momani, said Tuesday the outcome of Security Council voting yesterday affirmed int’l community’s rejection of the U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Though the U.S. vetoed the bill, the minister added the int’l law deems the U.S Jerusalem move as null and void.

Jordan will press ahead with its diverse maneuvers at all arenas to counter the precarious ramifications of the U.S. step and will mobilize support to recognize a sovereign Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital, he pointed out.

The Kingdom, he underlined, will exert robust efforts with Arab nations to underscore the status quo of the holy city of Jerusalem as an occupied land, to highlight illegality of the U.S. decision and to stress its contravention of all relevant Security Council resolutions.
