The 193-member United Nations General Assembly will hold a rare emergency special session on Thursday at the request of Arab and Muslim states on U.S. President Donald Trump\u2019s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel\u2019s capital, sparking a warning from Washington that it will \u201ctake names.\u201d\r\nPalestinian U.N. envoy Riyad Mansour said the General Assembly would vote on a draft resolution calling for Trump\u2019s declaration to be withdrawn, which was vetoed by the United States in the 15-member U.N. Security Council on Monday.\r\n\u00a0\r\nThe remaining 14 Security Council members voted in favour of the Egyptian-drafted resolution, which did not specifically mention the United States or Trump but which expressed \u201cdeep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem.\u201d\r\nMansour said on Monday he hoped there would be \u201coverwhelming support\u201d in the General Assembly for the resolution. Such a vote is non-binding, but carries political weight.\r\n\u00a0\r\nU.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, in a letter to dozens of U.N. states on Tuesday seen by Reuters, warned that the United States would remember those who voted for the resolution criticizing the U.S. decision.\r\n\u201cThe president will be watching this vote carefully and has requested I report back on those countries who voted against us. We will take note of each and every vote on this issue,\u201d Haley wrote.\r\nShe echoed that call in a Twitter post: The U.S. will be taking names.\u201d\r\nUnder a 1950 resolution, an emergency special session can be called for the General Assembly to consider a matter \u201cwith a view to making appropriate recommendations to members for collective measures\u201d if the Security Council fails to act.\r\nOnly 10 such sessions have been convened, and the last time the General Assembly met in such a session was in 2009 on occupied East Jerusalem and Palestinian territories. Thursday\u2019s meeting will be a resumption of that session.\r\nTrump abruptly reversed decades of U.S. policy this month when he recognised Jerusalem as Israel\u2019s capital, generating outrage from Palestinians and the Arab world and concern among Washington\u2019s Western allies.\r\nReuters.
