The controversial move by President Trump for the U.S. to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital has led to 8 countries calling for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council. U.S. allies Britain and France were among the countries that demanded the meeting which could happen as soon as Friday. Trump made the announcement Wednesday and also said the U.S. will be moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. That process could take years though.
The U.S. recognition is opposed by Palestinians, other Muslims and some U.S. allies who believe it could derail Mid-East peace efforts.
