The news also highlighted that Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi threatened that "if European countries do not support the resolution, it will become difficult for Arab countries to support Ukraine."
The resolution, presented by Jordan on behalf of the Arab group and adopted by the UN General Assembly, received the support of 121 countries.
