THE UNITED NATIONS, December 8. /TASS/. The United Nations Security Council could convene another session on Jerusalem in coming days, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN Vassily Nebenzya told reporters on Friday.

The UN Security Council had convened an emergency meeting on Friday following the US’ decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"I think today is not the end of the story. I guess we should wait for results of the Islamic states’ summit scheduled for coming days and it is highly possible that we will witness another session of the UN Security Council where someone will probably put forward their proposals," Nebenzya said.

On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump said "it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel." He added that he had directed the Department of State to begin a process of moving the US Embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
