UN vote against US Quds decision, sign of awakening opinion in world

Tehran, Dec 26, IRNA - Supreme Leader's Senior Advisor Ali Akbar Velayati said the UN General Assembly's vote to urge reversal of US decision on al-Quds indicates awakening of world's public opinion.

Addressing a press conference, Velayati said Palestine is the number one issue of the Islamic world.

Referring to the global reactions towrds the recent decision by US President Donald Trump to relocate Washington's embassy from Tel Aviv to the Holy Quds (Jerusalem), he said the move indicated that the Palestine issue is vital for the whole world.

On December 21, the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly voted in favor of a resolution that calls on the US to withdraw its controversial recognition of al-Quds (Jerusalem) as Israeli 'capital.' The 193-nation assembly adopted the resolution by a decisive vote of 128 to 9, with 35 abstentions.

Velayati added that the enemies are seeking to undermine the issue of Palestine and portrait the Islamic Republic of Iran which is deemed as the main advocate of Resistance Front as the main enemy of the world, but the majority vote foiled the plots hatched by the United States and its allies.

He added that the recent victories of the Resistance Front in Syria, Iraq and Yemen led to negative response from the European Union countries to the Trump decision.
