In a collective act of defiance toward Washington, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) voted 128 to 9, with 35 abstentions, for a resolution which opposed and rejected US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Major political powers such as Britain, France, Germany and Japan voted for the resolution, while some of US’ allies like Australia and Canada, abstained. India also voted in favour of the resolution demanding that the United States of America rescind its December 6 declaration on Jerusalem. India voted with Pakistan, Bangladesh and Maldives, in favour of the resolution which was passed with 128 votes.
