Sharjah 24 – Reuters: The United Nations Security Council will meet on Friday at the request of eight states over U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Al-Quds as the capital of Israeli occupation, diplomats said on Wednesday.
“The request for U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to publicly brief the Security Council meeting was made by France, Bolivia, Egypt, Italy, Senegal, Sweden, Britain and Uruguay,” said diplomats.

"The U.N. has given Al-Quds a special legal and political status, which the Security Council has called upon the international community to respect. That is why we believe the Council needs to address this issue with urgency," Deputy Swedish U.N. Ambassador Carl Skau said on Wednesday.
