More than 120 countries, including every Arab nation, voted at the U.N. General Assembly late on Thursday to urge the United States to withdraw its decision, announced earlier this month.

Diplomatic sources here told IANS that representatives of the Arab diplomatic community have met senior officials of the External Affairs Ministry seeking New Delhi's support in Thursday's crucial vote.

During a sit-in held outside the United States embassy in Amman on Friday, protesters expressed hope that the vote by more than 100 countries will have a positive impact on Jerusalem issue.

We congratulate the courageous 128 member countries which stood by the right thing despite all the threats.

The UN General Assembly has decisively backed a resolution effectively calling on the USA to withdraw its recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. A total of 128 members voted in favor of the resolution, nine countries voted against it and 35 others abstained.

The resounding failure by Israel and the US administration to thwart the pro-Palestinian vote at the UN General Assembly follows a similarly embarrassing UN Security Council vote on Monday which also rejected the US-Israeli position 14-1. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailed his decision, which reversed decades of US policy, as a "historic landmark".
