The General Assembly affirmed that: "...any decisions and actions which purport to have altered, the character, status or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem have no legal effect, are null and void and must be rescinded in compliance with relevant resolutions of the [UN] Security Council". [1]

The General Assembly demands all States comply with UN resolutions. The resolution also "calls upon all States to refrain from the establishment of diplomatic missions in the Holy City of Jerusalem".

Despite the resolution more than 10 countries consider moving their embassies to Jerusalem.
Israel is in talks with more than 10 countries over the possible move of their embassies to Jerusalem, said Israel's Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely, but she refused to name the countries.

Among those countries are the Philippines, Guatemala, Honduras, the Czech Republic, Romania, Ghana, Tanzania, and South Sudan. [2][3][4]

TheGuardian wrote: The United Nations general assembly has delivered a stinging rebuke to Donald Trump, voting by a huge majority to reject his unilateral recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. [5]
