Bolivia to seek U.N. Security Council meeting on Jerusalem status

Wed, Dec. 6, 2017
WASHINGTON - 6 December 2017: Bolivia plans to ask for a public meeting of the United Nations Security Council after U.S. President Donald Trump announces on Wednesday that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and will move its embassy there.

Bolivian U.N. Ambassador Sacha Sergio Llorentty Soliz said it would be a “reckless and a dangerous decision that goes against international law, the resolutions of the Security Council, it also weakens any effort for peace in the region and also upsets the whole region.”

A meeting of the 15-member council cannot be scheduled until Bolivia formally requests one. It was not immediately clear when such a meeting could be held.
