More than 100 nations voted in favour of a UN resolution calling for the US to drop its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, defying Donald Trump, who had threatened to cut aid to countries that supported the motion.

逾100个国家投票赞成一项要求美国放弃承认耶路撒冷是以色列首都的联合国决议,没有理会唐纳德•特朗普(Donald Trump)有关中止援助支持这一动议的国家的威胁。

The resolution saying that any change to the city’s status was “null and void” was requested by Arab and Muslim countries outraged at the US president’s decision and passed by 128 votes to 9 with 35 abstentions.


Mr Trump recognised Jerusalem as the Israeli capital this month and said he planned to move the US embassy to the divided city, a decision that reversed seven decades of American policy.


Arab and Muslim leaders, including staunch US allies, warned that the declaration risked fuelling instability in the Middle East and threatened hopes of reviving the moribund Israeli-Palestinian peace process.


The dispute over the decision intensified this week as the US warned that a vote against it at the UN could jeopardise funding for other countries.


Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, said on Thursday: “The United States will remember this day when it was singled out for attack in the General Assembly . . . We will remember it when so many countries come calling on us, as they often do, to pay even more. This vote will be remembered.”

美国驻联合国大使尼基•黑利(Nikki Haley)周四表示:“美国将记住今天发生的事情,它在联合国大会上被挑出来作为攻击对象……当很多国家像他们经常做的那样,找我们要更多钱的时候,我们将记住这件事。这次投票将被记住。”

Mr Trump had warned on Wednesday that “we’re watching those votes. Let them vote against us. We’ll save a lot. We don’t care. They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars, and then they vote against us.”


Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey’s president, criticised the US threats on Thursday, in a speech in Ankara, saying: “Mr Trump, you cannot buy Turkey’s democratic will with your dollars.

土耳其总统雷杰普•塔伊普•埃尔多安(Recep Tayyip Erdogan)周四在安卡拉发表演讲时批评美国的威胁,称:“特朗普先生,你不能用你的美元收买土耳其的民主意志。

“I hope and expect the United States won’t get the result it expects from [the UN] and the world will give a very good lesson to the United States.”


The status of Jerusalem is one of the most contentious issues in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Israel regards it as its undivided capital and claims sovereignty over the entire city. But the international community views East Jerusalem, which Israel captured during the 1967 war, as occupied land and the Palestinians see it as the capital of a future state. No country has an embassy in Jerusalem.


The resolution did not mention the US specifically but expressed “deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem”.


Mr Trump’s advisers portrayed his decision to recognise the divided city as the capital of Israel as an inevitable recognition of reality. It allows Mr Trump to demonstrate resolve on a hugely symbolic issue and redeem a pledge to supporters and important political donors that he first made during the presidential campaign.


Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, applauded Mr Trump’s move on Jerusalem and called the UN a “house of lies” ahead of the vote. “The state of Israel totally rejects this vote, even before [the resolution’s] approval,” Mr Netanyahu said in a speech in Israel.

联合国举行投票之前,以色列总理本雅明•内塔尼亚胡(Benjamin Netanyahu)对特朗普在耶路撒冷问题上的决定表示赞赏,并称联合国是一个“谎言之家”。“甚至在决议通过之前,以色列政府就完全拒绝这一表决,”内塔尼亚胡在以色列发表演讲时表示。

Mr Trump has promised to broker what he has described as the “ultimate” deal to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Advisers led by Jared Kushner, his son-in-law, have been hoping to announce plans for a new peace process early next year.

特朗普已承诺要斡旋达成他所称的“终极”协议,以结束以巴冲突。以他的女婿贾里德•库什纳(Jared Kushner)为首的顾问们希望最快在2018年初就宣布启动新和平进程的计划。
