Israel’s ambassador to the UN Danny Danon responded to the Egyptian drafted proposal to the United Nations Security Council regarding Jerusalem by saying that “Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.”

“No vote or debate will change the clear reality,” he added.

Should the proposal gain nine votes favoring it and not encounter a veto from the United States, France, Britain, Russia or China it would prevent decisions that alter the status of Jerusalem from gaining a legal status. Including the recent US decision to recognize the city as the capital of Israel. 

However, it is estimated that the US would veto the proposal should it come to a vote.
