The United Nation's General Assembly in a unanimous decision has rejected US recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel. 
The UN General Assembly on Thursday adopted by a decisive vote of 128 to 9, with 35 abstentions, a motion rejecting the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, according to AFP.
 
The rejection comes after President Donald Trump had warned ahead of the vote in the 193-nation assembly that “we’re watching” and threatened reprisals against countries that back the measure.
