United Nations Security Council Resolution 252 (1968)

A resolution adopted by the United Nations Security Council on 21 May 1968 with a vote of 13 For, 0 Against, 2 Abstaining (Canada and the United States). The resolution invalidated the legal and administrative measures undertaken by Israel since the 1967 Six Day War with the goal of changing the status of Jerusalem, in violation of UN General Assembly Resolutions 2253 and 2254, and called on Israel to rescind those measures and avoid further actions to that effect.
