The political conflict over Jerusalem could turn into an unrelenting religious conflict, France's Permanent Representative Francois Delattre said.
Citing several Council resolutions, he said that any unilateral changes to the city's status would be null and void.
US Permanent Representative Nikki Haley said the US "recognises the obvious, that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel".
She said the US continued to be "committed to achieving a lasting peace agreement", and accused the UN of bias, saying it "has outrageously been one of the world's foremost centres of hostility towards Israel".
"Israel will never be, and never should be, bullied into an agreement by the UN or by any collection of countries that have proven their disregard for Israel's security," Haley said.Pakistani cleric and head of Jamatud Dawa Hafiz Saeed addresses an anti-American rally in Lahore, Pakistan
Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed on Friday made his first public appearance after he was freed from house arrest and led a rally here to launch a country-wide campaign against US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Saeed said the Defence Council Pakistan (DCP) will send its delegations to Muslim countries and convince them not to open their embassies in Jerusalem as he led the rally outside the JuD headquarters in Chauburji after the Friday prayers. The banned JuD, believed to be the front organisation for the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) which carried out the 2008 Mumbai terror attack in which 166 people were killed, is an active member of the DCP. "Any Muslim country if opens its consulate in Jerusalem should be barred from opening their embassies in the Muslim countries," Saeed suggested. He said the Muslim countries should unite against the US. Saeed said the Pakistani government should immediately convene a session of joint parliament to discuss the Jerusalem announcement and make a strategy regarding it.

All the marches started from mosques, just after the midday prayers. But protesters were prevented from marching in the capital Algiers due to a government ban dating back to 2010, which says such events would disturb public order. Hundreds of people challenging the authorities, therefore, clashed with the police in several neighborhoods, including the southern suburb of Algiers, local media reported.
